ITV working furiously on Terrahawks 30th anniversary special

ITV has pledged to knock-out a 30th anniversary tribute to its greatest-ever sci-fi show, Terrahawks.

Stars of the 1980s show that ITV could track down and are still alive have been gathered for a one-off episode using puppets found in an Elstree lock-up.

The hour-long show will be broadcast some time on Thursday afternoon, depending on regional programming schedules.

Terrahawks fan Roy Hobbs said: “I hope it recalls those magical moments as a child when I’d flick through the channels on a Sunday afternoon and notice it was on.

“I’m sure all Terrahawkians will be eagerly tuning in to watch the new adventures of whoever the good guy was.

“I think it was ‘Geoff’.”

Now! albums beg for death

THE Now! series of compilation albums, which reached its 86th installment last week, has begged to be allowed to die.

The series, which began in 1983 when music was good, has had to suffer the painful degradation of songs by Katy Perry, Ed Sheeran and the Creature That Wins The X-Factor.

Now! said: “You should have seen me back then. Total Eclipse of the Heart, Karma Chameleon and then – seemingly out of nowhere – Malcolm McLaren. Boom!

“I was popular and I was cool.”

Now! added: “When home taping was killing music, I was there to keep it alive. When genres were separated by musical apartheid, I put Iron Maiden and Sabrina on the same CD.

“I should have retired with Now! 65, after the humiliation of carrying solo singles by members of Blue and Busted on one album. But they wouldn’t let me.

“Who’s still buying me when you can download anything you like for nothing? There’s no need to buy a Nick Berry song packaged with your Janet Jackson one anymore. Please kill me.”

Meanwhile, it has been confirmed the 100th Now! album will include tracks from Johnny Hates Jazz, B*Witched, Ace of Base and Scooch.
