NOW ONLINE IN THE UK: 'STAR WARS AT THE BBC'

C-3PO is looking for Artoo during his 1980 appearance on the children's show SWAP SHOP. Images: BBC.

Sadly, its only available for another 20 or so days, but if you're able to you'll wanna check out the 20 minute long special BBC archive clips show on their iPlayer system for STAR WARS AT THE BBC, hosted by the always funny comedian/actor, and voice of Darth Maul, Peter Serafinowicz. Its a nice look back at the Classic Trilogy heroes at their first peak of popularity: Mark Hamill's enthused premiere appearance on the children's feature programme BLUE PETER in 1977, followed by Carrie Fisher and others in 1980, where they'd bravely consume the notorious "Star Wars Stew"! Plus Anthony Daniels on SWAP SHOP in 1980 and Dave Prowse as himself and Darth Vader in LATE NIGHT AT PEBBLE MILL, and a look at the filming of TESB for the business programme THE RISK BUSINESS.
