Like Superman on the radio (great for the imagination), likewise Journey Into Space, or the TeleGoons. Showing my age now!!

The Girl From U.N.C.L.E. / The Man From U.N.C.L.E.

Anyone remember this spin-off from The Man From U.N.C.L.E. - which, after a search, I'm amazed to find hasn't been discussed on here either?!
So please feel free to reminisce about either.

I used to work with a bloke called Illya, named after the bloke off The man from.... It plagued his life.

Was he Russian? At least he wasn't named after the other one - Napoleon.

It seems that the Man from U.N.C.L.E. gets lots of repeats, but you never see the Girl. Shame!

No, he was from London. No Russian ethnicity whatsoever.

They haven't shown the Man repeats for a while, mind. Not on the normal terrestrial channels anyway. To my knowledge.

Was the Girl one better than the Man one?

I loved it, but I was a very young girl at the time - it might be rubbish now! It starred Stefanie Powers, (later to do "Hart to Hart"), and Noel Harrison, (son of Rex).

Maybe it was the "girl power" aspect - very rare to get a show that had a female lead in those days, especially one who had some guts. (In those days, Dr Who's assistants would scream or fall over when the going got tough. :roll: Not very realistic!)
