I have the Brian Clemens ITC 'Thriller' box set on my 'to buy' list. Being too young back in the early 70's I've never seen it, but I've heard good reports of some episodes. I have the whole set. Not bad, but don't attempt to watch more than a couple back to back - some are very slow. They repeated...

They were showing Hammer house of Horror at one time too. I'd love to see some kind of classic telly channel....In the meantime I'm glad a ...

Re: ITC Series...Anyone a fan?

Anybody else here a fan of classic series from ITC, such as Man in a suitcase,The Champions, The Prisoner etc. I'm a huge fan of these sorts of programs..my favourite is Randall and Hopkirk Deceased. I think in the 60's there was more imagination put into creating programs...ITC managed to capture ...

Chuck and Annie's house

Any idea yet as to where Chuck and Annie's (rather run down) country cottage was? We know it was off that busy main road down a smaller lane, but anyone know anything else? One thing is possible, if its in the south east of england (Berks/Bucks/Herts like the rest of the series), and it was that nea...

Re: Love the locations pics :)

I love looking at the locations...I'm a bit of a locations freak :) I han't been to any of the HOH locations but I do intend to some time soon and this site is proving pretty useful. Is anyone familiar with Google Earth. It's really easy to follow roads and landmarks and features are recogniseable ...

Sorry, I forgot the original question. I think it's offices now so you can't go in. Most of the interior shots in the series were done in the house. The rooms were transformed into various sets and they employed a lot of painters and carpenters to do it. Some grave yard shots were done at the churc...

Traumatised Kids in House That Bled to Death

Has anyone thought what the effect was on those kids who got drenched in "blood" in the House That Bled to Death? I think one of them was the son of one of the producers - would be great to hear their memories of making that scene. Also how the hell did they get that girl to pretend to be gorging on...
