Hang out with Sir Roger Moore at The Persuaders 40th anniversary event


If you love classic ITC shows, then 10th September 2011 is a date worth noting, as that's the date for The Persuaders 40th anniversary.

Sadly, Tony Curtis is no longer around, but Sir Roger Moore will host the event at Kent House, Knightsbridge. Get there at 6pm for a food and drink reception, followed by an HD screening of two episodes (the event is also promoting the HD reissue of the series), then a Q&A and signing session with Sir Rog. That costs £40. Play the top-end £80 and you get an advance copy of the Blu-ray set, plus the opportunity to schmooze with Sir Rog and get your Blu-ray signed. The original Aston Martin from the series will also be on hand, should that float your boat.

All tickets are limited and available from the Network website. You can find out more about the Blu-ray set here and see over the page for a restored clip of the show.

The Monkees 45th anniversary tour screenprint


Just got an email off Rhino about the Monkees going out on tour, also mentioning the merchandise on offer for said tour. Amongst all the t-shirts, there's this gem – The Monkees 45th anniversary tour screenprint.

It's a rather cool, vintage-style print made for the tour, a two-colour prong on 'thick cardstock'. Shame it only features the touring members (sorry Nesmith fans), but it's still an eye-catching item.

Grab it online at the Rhino site, $20 secures one.
