Re: Your fav childrens programme?

Around the same time as those "Do or die aeronauts" were flying, there was a programme to do with parachutists called "Rip Cord" cant for the life of me remember any of the story lines or even what it was about , but I think it may have been American.!!!

Loved the bit this week with their home built Gee Wizz on the "Top Secret" test track. Good job they didn't put it round the skid pan , they'd have probably blacked out half of Warwickshire!!
