Well, there may not be many people here yet, but here's something that made me think of Blake's Seven recently.

I was listening to a radio documentary about Margaret Thatcher last week, which had been made to commemorate the 30th anniversary of her becoming Prime Minister. And amid the various anecdotes about "what she was really like" one made my jaw drop slightly. You knew you were in with her, one aide said, when she sat down with you for a chat and took her shoes off. Which immediately brought to mind a certain episode broadcast a few weeks before Thatcher took office:

I can't see the picture, but I know exactly which episode you mean!

I don't think you can show Lisa's pictures elsewhere. You can link to them, but only the ones with the text.

I think the problem might be that the link is an img tag, but the linked object is a .htm *shrug*

I couldn't immediately guess the episode - although it became obvious in hindsight :) - but a bit of source-poking yielded the URL, which is:

And Thatcher was never that fabulous ;)
