Insane ideas of our times

Finally succeeded in grabbing a download of an episode of 80s kids show "The Adventure Game", which I haven't seen in 20 years or so.

And what exactly is the real purpose of the Vortex - why does it matter whether or not these unfortunate visitors have to walk the billions of miles back to earth. I'm even imagining a freeform with real BBC Micros.

Made me smile to see the program again. It was every bit as lovely as I remember. Gronda gronda and so forth.
