because it was shot on 35mm film,

Despite a long and diverse career

in the theatre and cinema,

Patrick Macnee

(...)

will be remembered

as John Steed,

the umbrella-twirling,

bowler-hatted hero

of the stylish derring-do

TV series The Avengers.

 

The programme,

written and presented

in “swinging” 1960s London,

was thrilling and dynamic,

and it made a star of Macnee

and his sidekicks

Honor Blackman

(as Cathy Gale)

and Diana Rigg

(as Emma Peel).
