My 1974 haul of Annuals seems to be well represented at www.tonystrading.co.uk
The Protectors - Gerry Anderson production, 'Avenues and Alleyways'theme tune and the lovely Nyree Dawn Porter too. *sighs*
I used to be a terror for TV Detectives, but always found Columbo and Canon a bit boring. I'm sure Steve McGarrett (Hawaii Five-O) must have been inspired by Elvis.
Superman, Batman and Robin - all thriller no filler illustration only. Luscious.
It Wasn't all action for 74 there were cartoons and comic annuals too.
I only found out about the Whizzer characters sneaking into Chips stories and vice versa, years after I stopped reading W & C ( I think Minnie's mixer - one of my faves had been phased out by the 74 annual).
The BBC always had the best cartoons.
