Seemingly never-ending ‘improving’ sci-fi saga of dubious scientific veracity from the pen of Nicholas Fisk, concerning futuristic boarding-school children who go off exploring space on a whim. Phenomenally popular, especially with present-buying relatives who’d heard that you liked ‘space’, but in truth little more than a traditional children’s adventure yarn with a couple of ‘meteorites’ bolted on for good measure and of scant use to anyone who’d been suckered by the imaginative flair of The Tomorrow People.

Creamguide's Pick of the Day
It used to be that everyone in Britain went to the same place on holiday every year, and certainly Creamguide did that with its annual jaunts to Conwy in North Wales, where we had many happy times, though the other Christmas we nipped back for old time’s sakes and were amazed we exhausted the town centre in half an hour, and heaven knows how we used to get a week out of it. In this series Len will be taking a celebrity back to some old haunts, every day at this time, kicking off with Dave Myers on the Isle of Man.
