Nemesis: The Champions coming to a bad cable channel near you

Oh joy upon joys, relaxing on the couch and suddenly before my eyes one of the maddest and baddest ‘secret organisation’ genre TV shows I’ve ever seen, The Champions. I can’t believe Ive never seen it before.

Originally only running from September 1, 1968 to April 1, 1969; it charts the adventures of three ‘champions’, Craig Sterling, Sharron Macready and Richard Barrett.

“Endowed with the qualities and skills of superhumans – qualities and skills, both physical and mental, to the peak of human performance. Gifts given to them by an unknown race of people, when their ‘plane crashed near a lost civilisation in Tibet. Now, with their secrets known only to them, they are able to use their fantastic powers to their best advantage…as The Champions of Law, Order and Justice. Operators of the International Agency, Nemesis!”

The episode this morning was all about strange witchcraft and secret uranium mining in Cornwall (a nice crossover I thought). Absolute bloody genius.
