In search of lost gold - Battleground 1978 TV Programme

Every now and again I pick up a lost cause (the perfect set of wargaming rules for a period) or start believing in an urban legand (alien spaceship on the moon) until; you sober up. So ... I started an internet search in the quest of the "lost" 1978 Battleground Tapes.

Other bloggers have covered this in far better detail that myself (see below):

What is it?

Intriguing details:

The closes I got was this elusive posting:

Other than that, no You Tube postings or the like :(
So after many hours of 'wasted' Internet browsing I drew a blank

Note: As a kid I remember seeing a clip really late at night in the 'somewhere' Western Desert with Airfix (classic) tanks, but that could be complete imagination on my part!

Addendum: I have posted a question on the above blog, let's see if I get a response

Edward Woodward, too? Blimey, Geordie, never heard of it; sounds interesting, though.

Really hope you get results. This was never shown over this side of the world. There was only an article in Mil Mod, I think!

Also i've recently sold the ECW collection that was used in the Edgehill episode.

Drop me an email, and you never know...
