UNLIKELY ENTRY in the 1980s parade of home computer shows, by dint of being on ITV and masquerading as kids teatime entertainment. ADRIAN HEDLEY was captain of a plywood-and-tinfoil spaceship, flying through blue screen galaxies on a magic micro mission to, er, get celebs of the likes of WILLIE RUSHTON to to play Manic Miner against each other. And that was it. Also included second-in-command JO WHEELER and “Egghead”, a humorously-dressed expert (of some description) who sat at the back to dispense deadpan information. Plus, for good measure (though also for bad), there was a ship’s computer with an “amusing” “personality”. Finally, said vessel somehow managed to boast, yes, a studio audience full of kids. But not the kind you wanted to hang out with. They were never that kind.
