      You are welcome, good to hear. Speaking about reliving a youth, i am working on a blog for music from the sixties, that is a walk down memorylane for me also, perhaps for you too.

    Thanks ever so much for these. They’re great uploads. The ADrive site is saying that they’re no longer available publicly, though. Same for the TV21 section. Any ideas about how to access them?

      Sometimes it’s just a temporary error from the downloadsite, sometimes you have to keep trying again, and when you try it the next day it’s working again, let me know how that went so i can see if i can correct the problem or make new downloadlinks.

    Apparently there was a TV21 #243 included in the Supermarionation Blu-Ray set. It would be nice, though not essential, if that could be found and included.
