I’m presently searching for some of my old VHS tapes from the 90s, so far I’ve managed to find a couple of old wrestling PPVs, and an old recording from an Easter holiday weekend edition of British morning strand GMTV (1993-2010). What makes this interesting for us is that the following week saw the ITV debut of V.R Troopers (it was already airing on the SKY services, but this was it’s terrestrial tv premiere), so at the very end of this particular morning they ran a small clip from “The Battle Begins Part One” as a taster of what to expect.
Your host for this kids strand is Simon Parkins. Better ( or lesser) known now as a weatherman for ITV Meridian, but who was a fondly remembered face on CBBC television during the Broom Cupboard years.
I’ve uploaded the Troopers promo, as well as an ad for it from earlier in the strand.
Apologies for the slightly loose-in-synch audio
