As part of the evening entertainment at the convention Tellycon 1990, a rather good compilation of clips was shown called "The Telefantasy Years". It has subsequently been shown at several other conventions.
Around that time BBC1 was running a popular series called "The Rock n Roll Years", combining news footage with musical hits of the day and a subtitled commentary. "The Telefantasy Years" copies that format and presents a selection of clips/photos from every significant British TV fantasy series, from "R.U.R." in 1938 to "The Lorelei" in 1990.
Along the way there's famous shows like "Doctor Who", "The Avengers", "Thunderbirds", "Blake's 7" and lesser known shows like "Shadows", "Friends in Space", "Boogie Outlaws". All accompanied by a contemporary pop soundtrack.
This is a third generation copy but easily watchable.
