Interster Still M.I.A.

On my old blog I put out a call for info of any sort — pictures, P2P — of a South African TV series that used marionettes like Gerry Anderson’s series, called Interster.

Someone recently emailed me to see if I’d found anything.

Nope.

But I did manage to come across a picture from Liewe Heksie, a series from the same production team that used marionettes. This series is available on DVD from South Africa.

    Hi! I’m glad to hear I’m not the only one so intrigued by this show! I’ve been on the lookout for Interster for quite a while now … I’ve been in regular contact with the SABC over the last 2 years – they set about obtaining necessary rights etc for DVD release. I was told those were obtained, and the DVD process is underway. I spoke last at the beginning of Feb and they said it would take a couple months. Otherwise, I was told that it was available for R850- (approx. $100) plus postage from SABC Enterprises. I’m keen to see the show – I have vague memories of it from my youth :) Regards, Chad

    OMFG pretty much sums it up. Or even OMFGICFBI !! It must be over ten years I’ve been trying to track this thing down, and all I had to go on was a bit of the theme tune in my head. You’re a legend, whoever you are, you’ll never know how chuffed I am with this.

    Many many thanks.
