For Val: "Avenues and Alleyways" by Tony Christie

I first heard this song as the opening music for a European based television show called The Protectors with Robert Vaughn (Man from Uncle) the timelessly elegant Nyree Dawn Porter and the late Tony Anholt, whom I had such a crush on when he played 'Tony Verdeschi' in Space: 1999.

Actually, here's the opening of the show, The idea who the bald dude at the very end is. He was not part of the cast.

I'm told Tony Christie is just as good a crooner as her ever was - he got a big tour after Amarillo was used in a comedy show over here a couple of years ago, and it went to number one on re-release!

Gotta love the shirt...

Ah, Nyree Dawn Porter. The Forsyte Saga. The BBC's biggest ever mistake (they made it in b&w when just about to embark on colour broadcasting, and when most of the world they wanted to sell it to already had colour.)

The Protectors was compulsory viewing. I can't remember a thing about it!
