Rhodes – tape 2271

This tape opens with a trailer for Beck.

Then, another episode of Rhodes, about the terrible imperialism in Africa.

This episode is The Place of The Killing, episode 3, and Rhodes is trying to get permission to mine for Gold from one of the African chiefs.

BBC Genome: BBC One – 29th September 1996 – 21:00

Recording switches, and we get the end of The Legacy of Reginald Perrin, a trailer for Auntie’s TV Favourites, and a trailer for Beck.

Then, the next episode of RhodesThe Price of My Blood. Queen Victoria makes an appearance.

Victorian I’m a Celebrity is a bit grim.

BBC Genome: BBC One – 6th October 1996 – 21:05

To the next episode, preceded by the end of The Legacy of Reginald Perrin. There’s a trailer for the episode of Clive Anderson All Talk we saw a couple of days ago, and for Big Cat Diary.

Then, the next episode of RhodesThe Chameleon and the Fly.

I’ve no idea who Ken Stott plays in this, and I don’t particularly care, but if he’s not the moustache twirling villain I’d be disappointed.

BBC Genome: BBC One – 13th October 1996 – 21:05

Another blast of Reggie Perrin before the next episode, followed by a trailer for How do They Do That? and one for Vet’s School.

Then, more Rhodes with Land, Gold and Loot. There’s some fairly impressive crowd scenes for some of the battles. No CGI at this time. Extras are probably cheaper in South Africa as well.

After this, recording continues with a trailer for Beck and for Everyman.

Then, a whole BBC News report (except some football, blocked by the Premier League).

BBC Genome: BBC One – 20th October 1996 – 22:00

There’s a trailer for Panorama. Weather from David Lee. A trailer for Here and Now with Sue Lawley.

Then, the very start of Clive Anderson All Talk. The tape ends after a minute or two.
