The Young Ones Ephemera

A couple of bits of The Young Ones ephemera I’ve stumbled across.


The first, a trailer – with a trailer – for the first season of The Young Ones.

And in the second, a Friends Provident advert from 1990, Vyvyan and Neil sellout long enough to try and flog us insurance and investment products whist running around a supermarket.

Cleaning Up

Deep Space Nine sizzle reel, remastered using machine learning. The linked version without the Youtube compression artefacts is really rather impressive.

There’s lots of media out there that, either due to cost or just that HD elements never existed, will never be remastered for modern displays. Blackadder, Red Dwarf, early Doctor Who; all of these could be rejuvenated for the 21st century.
