Finally got around to read the whole TV Times (was away on a short holiday before) and loved it. Lots of interesting articles and cool design. Can't wait for the next issue...

Meike

Thanks Meike. Fleag and Boris at Music art Design took the fanzine into the magazine that Dave Thompson propsed we create. Ace job you creative TUTS you.  8)

TV Times 45 is already 90% written Meike and TV Times 46 edited by Fred is about 30% written I think. :-\

Hope you enjoyed the first two pages and the Meike magic comment. ;)

Thank you for sending me such wonderful photo's. 8)

Hi folks-
Many thanks for sending me the download link for the resurrected TV Times fanzine and for all the care and hard work you are putting into the project.
Have only just managed to clear the time to read it all. Really looking forward to hearing those remastered demo's...
Keep up the good work all!
Jamie

Cheers Jamie, we really apprecaite your kind words.

It certainly was a labour of love.

Hope you get some interest from the plug we gave your Uncharted Wrecks of Wonder TV Smith documentary.

I've had a few posiTV e-mails on TV Times 44 from the likes of Richard Strange's and a certain TV Smith.

Not heard from Dave Thompson yet. I feel bad about moving most of Dave's brilliant piece on the Birth of TV Times into issue 45.

In the original TV Times 44 the focus was on Dave's story but when TV told us that Sparkle in the Mud was going to be released we felt that as it was TV's magazine we'd re-write and re-design TV Times 44 to focus on promoting those shining 80s Demos.

Real sorry Dave. We'll make it up to you next issue.

To be honest the next issue will still be in the Spring and it's simply the second part of the first new issue. It just got too bloomin big to download. ::) :-[

Great news Klaus! Who'd have thought there's so many readers out there?  :)

For instance, The Damned website forum might be interested in it Uli because of TV's connections to the Captain and ex-Damned original member; Brian James.  ;)

Well, I created a posting there last week. 53 views, no replies as yet.
Haven't seen RancidTom there (or here, btw) for quite a while...

52 to a Cast of Thousands. Many thanks for the update Klaus. :D

It's interesting that the number of downloads has already exceeded are expectations.

...Saying that we never discussed are expectations.  ;D

If it hadn't have been for the wisdom of Klaus and Fleag deciding to release this as a download we could measure I'd have been thinking this goal had been a huge failure.

That's because the amount of feedback has definately not exceeded our expectations.

One of my core goals in bringing TV Times back from the dead was to attarct new posters onto the forum.

Oh! Well Rome wasn't built in a day.

Now what was it TV once said about "whilst Rome burned"?  ;) ;D ;D ;D

Of course the other main goal that me and Klaus had was to spread the word about how phenominally sparkling the 80s Demos are.

...And we have certainly achieved that.

In fact I'm blinded by the light. 8) 

Keep spreading the word TUTS.

As well as attracting new TUTS to the world of all things TV Smith I'm also I'm really interested in what some of the regular posting TUTS think of the magazine. Fred, Fleag, Boris and I are really keen to produce the TV magazine that you want to read.

Two questions...

1. What do you think of TV Times 44?

2. What would you like to see in future issues?
