Some UK shows to make you homesick

How about:

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy?  As I press the black button a black light comes on...

Or you may prefer Red Dwarf, or Doctor Who visiting the Stone Age in his Tardis?

@Paul: The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy?

The books -- brilliant

But the film? Meh!

YES! That was a classic -- but which image? Remember we can't have one of people talking to each other because we can only show still images and that would look silly -- maybe Crighton?

@Paul: ...Doctor Who visiting the Stone Age in his Tardis?

I was going to say that Dr Who and I have an agreement -- I won't appear in his TV show and he won't appear in my Caveman Diorama, but...

...I remember watching the very first episode from beghind our sofa in November 1963 wjhen I was 6 years old ... as you say, in the next couple of episodes they went back to the stone age ... hmmmm

Max...a couple of suggestions...

Soylent Green (1973) would have some nice post apocalyptic images

THX1138 (1971) the first film directed by George Lucas, I've only seen it once and recollections are dim, but there are some quite weird scenes in it

Logan's run (1973) about a future world of underground dwellers who only live till 30

As for TV shows... Jetsons?

Ah -- Soylent Green -- of course -- in fact I was listening to Beethoven's Pastoral on Spotify this weekend thinking of this film -- I agree -- it's a must have.

I've never seen THX1138 -- I need to rectify this situation

Logan's Run -- YES!!!!

Jetsons -- oooh -- I agree -- a view of their city or their home woudl be good...

Of course Buckaroo Banzai will be represented, do you think I'm a philistine?

Thank you for clearing that up. I was dejected to the point of being about to go start reading car magazines or something.

 RE: The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy?

I never saw the film but read the books and listened to the radio show that a friend had taped. Based on this review, I might as well skip the film...

If the film isn't that good, what about artwork from a book cover?

Actually, that might work for a number of books that never got made into movies...
