Yep I remember the days, I especially remember opening up the old BT bell box and tapping the phone to my reel to reel recorder.

Laser? from the Space 1999 TV series and the 'Sandman' pistol from the Logan's Run movie and possibly the TV Series of the same name. The Sandman gun kind of spoiled the movie for me as the one in the book was way cooler, it fired six different kinds of ammunition and looked like a Colt Peacemaker, however seeing Jenny Agutter with no clothes on made up for my disappointment.

Most of the OP's video was lost on me as I stopped being a child in 1978, about the first time I first heard 'The Ruts'.

Mate I think that "willow the wisp" had an enormous amount to answer for, I'm fairly sure that I've still not recovered

I can't be old after all, I only remember most of those :rolleyes:

I agree that between them Willow the Whisp, Renta Ghost and the Magic Roundabout made for a very interesting child minder for a few hours a week!

It used to scare the carp outta me when I was knee high. To this day, looking back, it still spooks me a little :)
