Retrogram #7129: Apollo 15

The week of July 18th, 1971: As the crew of Apollo 15 prepared to go to the moon, it was a dead week for American genre TV…but still a lively one across the pond. Meet a magician named Tarot, and an alien-fighter named Colonel Ed Straker.

Oh, and one of these shows can’t be seen anymore, anywhere – it might as well be on the moon. (48:13)
