Marvin, the manically depressed robot from The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy TV series (were *you* old enough to stay up and watch it?) makes a special "personal appearance" on the BBC's flagship Kids' TV show to "perform" his first vinyl single release. (Don't know what you think, but I reckon he's miming!) As ever, Stephen Moore provided the voice, with a special recording for the part where Marvin speaks to the BP presenters. Inside the costume on this occasion was BBC Vis FX Assistant Stuart Murdoch, not David Learner (who played Marvin in the TV series). Watch for Renny (Dennis Potter's latter day director) Rye's credit and the bit where the dog is chewing on the tortoise near the end...!
