Pete from the Smorgasbored podcast joins us this week, and we're off to Marineville for a nice little holiday filled with sea invaders, love triangles, descending buildings and awesome submarines as we take a look at a Gerry Anderson programme from the Sixties that was all over Eighties (and Nineties) kid's programming - Stingray!

We have Chris Vint joining us this week, and it's a bit of a videogamey one, considering we're talking about the 1989 movie that Nintendo filled to the brim with product placement - The Wizard! But is this version of Tommy for Gen X any good? Or is it like the Power Glove itself, "So Bad?" Join us to find out!

As promised last time he was on, Andy from the Smorgaspod and myself start going through the whole of Marvel UK, issue by issue!

This episode was recorded just after we lost the incomparable Dame Diana Rigg, and as such, Leigh and Glenn decided it was only right to take a look at an episode that was written especially for her: The Crimson Horror, from 2013. There's also the lastest WHOpinion from Jenny, and some Time Lord Victorious rumblings as well! Nerva Beacon on Facebook: facebook.com/NervaBeaconPodcast Nerva Beacon on Twitter: @NervaBeaconPod

As there's recently been announced a new RoboCop show (set before Robo - surely this will be called "Cop"?), Duncan joins us to talk about the 1994 Canadian version of RoboCop that was family friendly, where criminals only shot to maim, and were only a little bit naughty.  But, as Glenn argues, shouldn't there be a version of Robo for the kiddywinks? Let's find out! Back to the Eighties @ Twitter: @BTTEPOD Back to the 80's on Facebook: facebook.com/bttepod

THIS IS AN EMERGENCY! Seeing as BritBox has all things Gerry Anderson on it right now, Dan Hadley from the Type 40 Podcast joins me to discuss his major puppet series from the Eighties - Terrahawks! It's weird, it's odd, it's deeper than you think. And Zelda is STILL bloody scary. Ten-Ten! Back to the Eighties @ Twitter: @BTTEPOD Back to the 80's on Facebook: facebook.com/bttepod
