Still waiting for Dr Who to come back.

Even black and white reruns would be nice.  Come to think of it I have quite few episodes on VHS but no way to play them now.  No 8 tracks left.

Did you notice that the heads were facing backwards away from the speakers both on the podium and when the reporters were holding them?

It's always fun when you see ham equipment
on TV shows or the movies. I once saw a TV
show where they were using a Kenwood TS-940
as a police scanner, freq was 14.xxx I recall.

Prop guys from production crews used to come
into HRO Burbank quite often to rent demo equipment
for video/films, etc. Probably still do.

Remember the Sci Fi movie "Frequency"?
The plot premise was a bit silly but I liked
it anway.

Dr Who returns in the spring, at least for us on this side of the pond! I live only around 6 miles from the inside of the TARDIS, and apparently filming is well under way.

Watch out for the Daleks!
There will never be a better Doctor than David Tennant. IMHO

Tennant, Ecclestone, Davidson, Tom Baker, McGann, Colin Baker, Pertwee, McCoy, Troughton & Hartnell is about the correct order! The Welsh ones are definately the best though ;0)

The 9th and 10th Doctor episodes are available on iTunes--as are many of stories from the the classic series (Doctors Hartwell through McCoy).  The most recent shows are available in HD.

The closet I get to BBC, is on PBS.  I record BBC news and watch it over morning coffee.  Surprisingly, I also record Al-gee-zira news from PBS.

I keep looking forward to Dr. Who being his daughter driving that old car from one of the original Drs.  At that point, maybe they change the title to Dr. Whom?

A friend and I watched the first season of the "new" Battlestar Galactica series last summer.  We both noticed the presence of electronic hardware that would be at home in a ham fleamarket.  This include d-104s used at press conferences and in one scene, something akin to a Shure 444 desk microphone.

In the "special features" on one of the disks, the producers mentioned that they intentionally wanted an "old analog world" look to the electronics.  The Battlestar was, in theory, old technology that could not be improved due to the length of the war, at the time of the stories, over 50 years in process.

So, it should come as no surprise that they used the same props for Caprica that they used on the "Battlestar" series...the start of the war was when the technology was frozen.

Yeah, cant miss the D104s. The whole battlestar galactica series mixed future and old tech in this way. Very strange but fun. They have mega micro processors and artifical intelligient robots, but reel-to-reel tape recorders and antique looking radios (they call them wireless units). I enjoyed how the chatter between ships and fighters sounded like a typical SSB signal. You'd think they'd have some kind of crystal clear digital mode!
