The appearance of Strauss' Four Last Songs on here  brought these uppermost in my mind

 

 

Also From Wagner, the most passionate vocal music of all time:

Who remembers Quatermass, the TV series in the fifties and the movie Quatermass and the Pit in the late 70's

I do Oz and I can remember the locust style of walking of those affected in the 50's series... The 70's not so much.

I wasn't allowed to watch Quatermass on the telly because my Mum didn't like that sort of thing.  I did see Quatermass and the Pit on the cinema though, and several times on the TV since.  It was on last night on some channel. It was released in 1967.

 

Margie, I recall watching Survivors, though I have a vague memory that the series sort of ran out of steam.

 

A similar thing happened with the kids SF series Tripods.

The thing I remember most about Quatermass, which always put the wind up me as a child, was the intro music= "Mars, the bringer of War".

Incidentally, for the last 14years, my next door neighbours have been Mr. & Mrs. Quatermass ! They moved to Seaford, about 3 months ago. They are both in late eighties.

Funny you should say that BK, I too had nightmares over the one and only episode I watched as a kid. I happened to see the episode that scared me a couple of years back, somewhere on the internet, and Jeeze, it was so primitive, made me wonder what scared me.

It was only years after before I found out about the music. Of course it was Gustav Holtz, "The Planets Suite". I've still got the album I bought way back in the early seventies, (will have to transfer it to cd or MP3).

When we first moved to sheltered housing in 2005, I was introduced to Mr.Quatermass, I thought it were a joke. A bit embarrassing really as he remarked that I wasn't the first to disbelieve. All this about fifty years after watching the series.

I have a mono vinyl I bought in the 60's of the Planet Suite, in the 90's I purchased a stereo CD of it.

Ayup, I cannot believe how quick your response is !! Considering how far apart we are. Technology still amazes me. At least a great diversion from the current nightmare we are all in..
