#1 The Tripods (http://www.gnelson.demon.co.uk/Tripods.html)
I kinda liked the first season.

I loved the Tripods.
At the time it was the most expensive series the Beeb had ever made and unfortunately the Bean Counters pulled it before they could make the 3rd and final series to complete the story. I was devestated - I waited for ages for the 3rd series to start and it never did...

I remember being really scared of those Tripods; the Capping Ceremony; all that stuff. Wonderful. I'm thinking of getting it on DVD actually.

Never saw the TV series, but remember reading the comic series published in Boy's Life back when I was a wee lad. I thought it was great.

'boy's life'?!
i think you're taking the camp bit of the thread title too seriously...

The Invaders was really good.

It started with a man too long without sleep to carry on...

OK that was probably a 50s or 60s show but I saw it in the 80s. :D

Yep, 'The Invaders' is good.
