MARK HAMILL'S TRIP TO "BLIGHTY"!

Here's a great and very rare UK interview with Mark Hamill, conducted at the Imperial College London from near Xmas 1977, when he did the promotional rounds for STAR WARS London Xmas release (though this interview was obviously intended for screening in early 1978, when the film was eventually released nationwide throughout the country). Hamill proves as enthusiastic and friendly as ever, and there's some lively anecdotes. The presenter has seen the film and does ask some good questions here and there, despite some occasional awkwardness. It's interesting that Hamill was going on from this interview to appear on the UK's BBC 1 children's magazine show BLUE PETER- a show the actor fondly enjoyed watching whilst making STAR WARS at ELSTREE in the summer of 1976.
