Here is Episode 5 of Series 6 of 'Spitting Image', ripped from VHS recordings. This was the last episode in that series - only five episodes were in that series making it the shortest of all eighteen.
I also have the whole of Series 7 to upload - so look out for these in the following month.
Transmitted 9 July 1989.
At it's height, 'Spitting Image' ran from 1984 to 1996. Seeing different eras of time and entertainment through two Conservative Prime Ministers.
It was produced by Spitting Image Productions for Central. The series was nominated for 10 BAFTA Awards, winning only one, for editing, in 1989.
As the show progressed, Britain's political landscape altered. Particularly, in the early 1990s, many of the characters who had proven so popular were retired from real-world politics, particularly Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan, whilst others such as Michael Heseltine and Norman Tebbit became much less prominent.
The quality of this file is quite impressive, but what you should expect from VHS.
