From the Radio Times Guide to Comedy (Lewisohn):
"Based on the Daily Mirror comic strip heroin. [Director Andrew Gosling] tried to do something groundbreaking with this series - Using Chroma Key technology and other state-of-the-art visual effects, he made the series semi-animated with the actors appearing in front of comic-strip backgrounds. The first series was compiled into a single programme for a repeat on 1 Jan 1983."
Note: The continuity announcement clearly places this as broadcast on the Sunday following the original daily run, which puts it at 8th August 1982.[/quote]
Snipped from Wikpedia: [color=#0000ff]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jane_(comic_strip)
[quote]Jane was a comic strip created and drawn by Norman Pett exclusively for the British tabloid The Daily Mirror from 5 December 1932 to 10 October 1959.
A television series was also made by the BBC between 1982 and 1984, starring Glynis Barber in the title role. The first season was simply titled 'Jane', while the second was called 'Jane in the Desert'. Despite the early evening scheduling slot the show was decidedly risque with Jane continuously stripping down to her underwear including stockings and suspenders. At the end of the second series' closing episode she even appeared topless momentarily.
Despite considerable publicity in the press at the time of its original screening, the show has slipped somewhat into obscurity and has never had a commercial video or DVD release. The show was briefly revived in 1985 as a 3-part sequence shown over a single morning on Breakfast Television, but without Glynis Barber in the lead role.[/quote]
Note: This is not my rip. 100% credit must go to the original ripper, ianwegg at UKN. I urge you to seek him out and shake his hand most vigorously. At least a high five. I only added the Wiki description and got some screen grabs.
