Hey, catweazel, is your avatar of a character played by actor Morgan Woodward? I know him from Star Trek: The Original Series as Simon Van Gelder and Captain Ronald Tracy.

It seems like the UK had so many cool shows (some I've seen, many I've only ever heard of).

No, Geoffrey Bayldon. Catweazle was an hilarious show. He was a wizard thrown forward in time, and his interactions with technology were very funny. For example, he used call the telephone, 'the telling bone' :lol:

I had top change the spelling because the correctly spelled name was already taken on forums.linuxmint.com.

Catweazle was a brilliant show, Bayldon passed it off brilliantly.

On another note, I see that you are in the AAT. It's one area I would love to have visited in my life, who knows what the future will bring. Apparently one of our local doctors has just gone down there. I did not know her, so, it's neither here nor there. What do you do down there, apart from freeze your but off! I'm sure an old wizard would need a few tricks in such a challenging environment.

I remember watching Catweazle as a kid. Some of my siblings and I use phrases from the show when we're talking to each other.

PS Geoffrey Bayldon died in May of 2017 at the age of 93. RIP.

No offence to anyone contributing to this thread, but I found the character really scary.

A friend of mine has the 40th anniversary DVD edition, which we saw together a year ago; even the DVD cover gives me the willies.

But, no doubt the show was pretty humorous.

On a side note, 'Electrickery' is now an official term meaning "a lighthearted introduction to the practice of electronics"
