  1. I haven't seen Nothing Lasts Forever in over twenty years, and your podcast has made me want to watch it again. I saw it when i was a teenager back in 1994 in the UK, it aired on BBC2 as part of the Moviedrome strand, hosted by Alex Cox. His amusing, parodic intro can ben seen on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d4dgqQ7-tkc
    Moviedrome (as hosted by Cox) was a great series, and before i stumbled across Michael J. Weldon's (second) Psychotronic Video Guide, these intros informed my early film criticsm that would many years later mutate into a book. In the 1994 season alone, this Welsh teenager stranded in the countryside was exposed to The Baby, The Harder They Come, Carny, Psychomania, KIss Me Deadly and Bring Me The Head Of Alfredo Garcia. Now that's programming! If you ever get Cox on again, you should ask him about Moviedrome.
