On 17th November 1977, a nine year old
boy sent a journalist into peril whilst waiting to leave for school and
a hero was born!
Growing from a child's game into
intricately drafted storylines, the bizarrely-titled The Magnet Editor ran
for ten years and a breathtaking 47 series.
In bringing the series to life, Nick
Goodman drew inspiration from 70s pop culture including Doctor Who and
New Avengers, and shared it only with his bewildered mother and a select
group of childhood friends. Jo Bunsell was one such friend and soon a
partnership began that transported them both into a shared universe of
preposterous and badly designed monsters and non-stop adventure in the
company of their extraordinary and strangely-named hero, Cabin Relese.
For the first time Goodman and Bunsell
open up their archive of materials and memories, and take you on a
roller-coaster ride into their world! By turns Magnet Memories is an
episode guide, a frank, critical, incredulous and nostalgic reflection, a
snapshot of childhood in the 70s and 80s...
