Michael Billington, U.F.O. and some childhood memories






U.F.O. was a British series by Gerry Anderson.  He was famous for creating 'Supermarionation'.  It was a puppet, or rather marionette, animation.  Stingray and Thunderbirds are two that I recall.  U.F.O. was quite short-lived, but long enough for me to get a dinky-toy of one of the vehicles at Harrods during a trip to England.  I do remember seeing the episode with Colonel Paul Foster (Billington) in the sauna.  It was on CBC TV - up in Northern Ontario - in the early 1970s.  Needless to say, my 7-year-old mind was transfixed by all that fur...  I do recall an absolute thrill, but naught to do about it.  I was just seven after all.

Thanks for this - me too! There was one episode I watched aged about 8 or 9 (circa 1974) and the men wore a uniform made out of meshing (like string vest - but with more chic). Obviously I was pre-pubescent - but even then I knew I liked men and not women and seeing these guys in their sexy uniforms turned me on, before I really knew what being turned on meant.

As for Billington, he too drew my attention - as the Australian 'Eagle' pilot in Space 1999!

Thanks again for these, warmed the cockles of a middle-aged man's heart!

Steven,

E.M. Forester had a philosophy that he applied to all that he wrote, he said once that one must "only connect". I am glad then, that out of the woodwork of the whole world (care of www) I was able to jab you back into your childhood. Well, then! It's something we share..!

Too cute Anon!

I remember really wanting the car that Straker drove. My lust for Billington's furriness came later :)

Re: my comment above - I was bumming around the internet this evening and came across this: http://ufoseries.com/photos/insideSkydiver.jpg which gives a piccy of the 'mesh' uniform I mention above... But looking at the UFO uniforms etc. it really was a bit of erotofest! Thanks again for this!
