For those of who don't remember, Mat Irvine was a BBC Visual Effects Designer and was responsible for the effects seen in many BBC shows in the 70's and 80's.

He is most famous for his work on Doctor Who and Blakes 7.

Anyway, from time to time he would pop up on BBC TV telling tales on how to do your own effects and sometimes how to blow things up...safely.

I've just found these great clips of him appearing on Swap Shop.

I think half the problem with these BBC shows is the use of video tape for the studio footage. The U.S. shows from the same era all used 35mm off the top of my head and have all aged better - visually anyway.

As for the show itself, I loved Blakes 7 too, i remember always turned the end of the theme tune right up loud on our old 26" phillips (huge in it's day ha ha)

I had the toy of the Liberator too.
