Star Wars on Blue Peter in the 80's :-)

Post by Snaketibe »

With humble apologies if this has been shared before, here is a 7 minute clip of Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, and (probably) Peter Mayhew and Dave Prowse on Blue Peter back in ~1980:



I think this is a brilliant and fascinating watch on several levels!

(I'm probably being thick, but I can't seem to work out how to embed the YouTube video, so if anyone can advise me I'd be grateful and will amend this post to include it properly! :-)) - Edit: Sorted now thanks to Twin30mm :-)

Love these "SW at the BBC" clips. Carrie is stunning.
I'm that old I remember seeing most of them when they were first broadcast :D
Makes me extremely nostalgic for those times.

As for embedding, you need to copy the alphanumeric code at the end of the Youtube URL (everything after the = sign) and insert it between the [youtube][/youtube] tags.

Thank you very much! :-)

Yes, Carrie was truly gorgeous! Like you it seems, I too am of an age where I saw these first time around, so it's marvellous to experience them again :-D
