They weren't the only ones to have no vision - after Star Trek finished filming, they destroyed the entire set. The captain's chair, in a skip! :shock:

Calm down, dear!!
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.

Bernard and the Genie was awesome. I've seen it so many times, wonder how it would hold up now (threw out all the old VHS tapes long ago).

In all fairness, tape was expensive, so was re-used, agreements with unions, especially Equity, limited the number of repeats, and home VCRs, with the potential to create a market for selling copies to fans, did not yet exist, at least when the destruction began. Television was not seen, even by its own creators, as anything more than an ephemeral art form, and posterity was not considered.

With the knowledge of the world as it was at the time, the decision made good sense, much as fans like me might loathe it.

Years later, when VCRs were widely available, feature films being released on VHS, and the BBC starting to put out documentaries, they stated that it was unlikely that they would ever offer even classic dramas such as I, Claudius to the public, as obtaining the necessary releases would, it was felt, be more work than the value of the market for such material.

I used to love 'Two Point Four Children'.

The Star Trek funeral episode was hysterical. :lol:

I'm talking about years before that was even made, around about 1980.
