Television has played such a huge part in all our lives, right down the
years from childhood through to today. Perhaps “The Monkees” was one of
those programmes you used to always watch after rushing home from a day at=

school in the 1960/70s, and the memory of which has stayed with you? If
so, there’s an event you are not going to want to miss.

Cult TV are extremely proud to announce that one of the stars of The
Monkees, Peter Tork, will be one of the guests at the 12th Annual Cult TV
Festival taking place in Birmingham, UK, between October 28th and 31st 2005=


Every year since 1994, the Cult TV Festival has entertained its attendees
with a whole host of guests from right across the television spectrum. For=

those of you unfamiliar with the Festival, here’s some background.

The Festival itself covers a broad range on TV programming from SF to
comedy, action adventure to animation, children’s series to drama,
including series that you particularly search the TV listings for because
of their quality, but perhaps seem unknown to most people. The sort of
show that you view more than once, and perhaps buy the DVDs and merchandise=

for. Put simply, the Festival covers extraordinary fictional television.

The Cult TV Festival is a charity event run by fans for fans. In the
previous 11 years we have raised GBP 41,000 (equivalent to 58,000 Euros or=

US$ 75,000) for charity.

CULT TV 2005

The Festival runs from noon Friday (28th) to noon Monday (31st) which,
because the clocks go back one hour during the weekend, means 73 hours of
non-stop entertainment and fun.

Guests can be from both in front of and behind the camera, as once again is=

proved this year from those announced so far. Aside from Peter Tork, they

John Saxon who has appeared in numerous TV series and who guest starred on=

“The Six Million Dollar Man” and over 100 feature films including =91Enter=

the Dragon’ with Bruce Lee.

same name; she also appeared in the classic John Wayne western “True Grit”,=

making her first UK event appearance.

numerous action films and the sit-com “That 70s Show”.

Pamela Sue Martin, Fallon from “Dynasty”, and the star of the 1970s “Nancy=

Drew Mysteries”, who is making her first-ever European event appearance.

Guests who have worked on the BBCtv series “Doctor Who”, both the original=

series that ran 26 years and the brand new series that started a few weeks=

ago here in the UK. These include new series Director, Brian Grant,
William Russell, Michael Keating (who was also Vila in “Blake’s 7”), Phil=
Madoc, Michael Sheard, and the producer of the audio adventures “Doctor Who=

Unbound”, John Ainsworth.

and then “Star Guests 2005” for a full list of guests so far announced, as=

the list is growing by the week, or alternatively go directly to the list

As with all events of this type, all guests appear subject to work and
personal commitments.


The guests are just one facet to this Festival. Cult TV is a multi-stream=

event, with many things happening at the same time throughout the weekend.

order, unless they have bought the Goldmember package – limited to 50 only=

Because at the time of booking we cannot guarantee on which day any one
guest will be at the event, if they are not appearing for the whole
weekend, or on stage for their interview, to avoid disappointment we only
sell a full weekend registration, the price of which is GBP 99.00 for the
first 500 registrations, after which the price increases to GBP 125.00
(lower child rates are available). The Goldmember Package, which also
includes seating in the front three rows, and a limited edition Gold

Costs for accommodation and food are not included, but has been negotiated=

at a very reasonable three night package rate.


The Festival is being held at the Renaissance Solihull Hotel, Birmingham,
UK. This is around 5 miles by road from the National Exhibition Centre
(NEC), Birmingham International Airport and the Birmingham International
Rail Station that serves both of these venues. That station is on the rail=

line from London’s Kings Cross Station. It is possible to take the short=

taxi ride to the hotel from Birmingham International. A second railway line=

serves Solihull itself on the line between London Marylebone Station and
Birmingham New Street; the hotel is just half a mile from Solihull station.


You can book online, or download and print off a booking form, at:

If you book online by debit/credit card there is a one-off fee of GBP 3.00=

have any questions or wish to join in with the current discussion topics
please register there and ask away!

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Henry Corden, the man who provided the voice of Fred
Flintstone for more than two decades, has died at age 85.

Corden’s agent says the actor died last night at A-M-I Encino Hospital with=

his wife by his side.

After making a few movies in the 1940s and 1950s, Corden moved into voice
acting in the 1960s. He had bit parts in cartoons such as “Jonny Quest,”
“Josey and the Pussycats” and “The New Tom & Jerry Show.”

He took over as the lovable loudmouth Fred Flintstone when original voice
Allen Reed died in 1977.

Corden, who lived in Encino, had been working until about three months ago.
