Cult TV production company ITC, producers of everything from Thunderbirds to The Prisoner and The Saint, will be the subject of an afternoon of screenings and talks at the BFI Southbank.

Lew Grade’s ITC lit up small screens in the 1960s with a number of exciting action-adventure series that rivalled the American model of production, often topping them in exuberance, style and panache.

The shows were often very much of their time, with the height of fashion used — so it’s a massive blast of the past to see Jason King or The Persuaders, or weird visions of the future in Space 1999 and The Champions.

Join Jaz Wiseman as he shares his considerable ITC archive, featuring the art and design of this famous British company. Expect rare marketing art and sales designs, as well as some well known and alternative-version credit sequences.

There will also be an introduction by Lord Michael Grade.

The Stylish World of ITC is at the BFI Southbank on Sunday 3rd December — and tickets need to be booked from here.

Be seeing you.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
