It's not great quality, the vid only fills part of the screen - but here it is.


As for The Tomorrow People - I absolutely loved it as a kid & to this day wish I could 'jaunt'.
Well done - excellent find there toty1994. Will watch that again when I get a minute. They don't make them like that anymore. I used to love watching Play for Today. whilst others sought their entertainment via Scooby Doo and suchlike.

Ahhhh Flintlock !!! I remember one their numbers in the hit parade went...

"Nobody's gonna steal mah thunder...nobody's gonna a steal mah lightnin' "

While the lead singer flailed two microphones on cables about, one in each hand.

It was presented on a programme called Get It Together all presented by that 'wild man' of kids' pop progs ...Roy North...who would break into song himself...

If you get the chance, listen to the commentaries on the DVDs for "The Tomorrow People" and there's more than one hint that Savile-type problems weren't confined to the BBC.

I only remember that show because that's where I first saw U2. Besides that, Roy North wasn't really 'rock n roll' at all. I think he wore a tank top.

And I do remember Flintlock. Quite ahead of their time with a name glorifying guns. Candidate for the first-ever gangsta rap outfit?
