The Avengers after 50 years.
Matthew Sweet of BBC Radio 3's Night Waves program discusses the impact of The Avengers after 50 years, especially on women, with various commentators (including Honor Blackman, who played Cathy Gale on the program, and series writer-producer Barry Clements). I like the fact that in France, The Avengers is called Chapeau melon et bottes de cuir (Bowler Hat and Leather Boots).
