Video: LOOK-IN Magazine 1970s TV Advert

Now this is my kind of magazine!

A 30 second 1970s TV advertisement for LOOK-IN Magazine, a long-running publication that focused on TV shows on ITV like THE SIX MILLION DOLLAR MAN, THE BIONIC WOMAN, MAN FROM ATLANTIS, THE TOMORROW PEOPLE and more.

YouTube poster haribokey explains:

70's uk advert for Look In Magazine. Look-in was a long running childrens magazine centred around ITVs television programmes in the UK, and subtitled The Junior TV Times. It ran from 9 January 1971 to 12 March 1994. Briefly, in 1985, a BBC-based rival appeared called BEEB, and later in 1989, Fast Forward, which went on to outsell Look-in.

Look-in had interviews, crosswords and competitions, and it had pictures and pin-ups of TV stars and pop idols of the time. Its main feature however was the many comic strips of the favourite childrens television programmes. These included Star Wars, Battlestar Galactica, Follyfoot, The Tomorrow People, The Six Million Dollar Man, Charlies Angels, Worzel Gummidge, Knight Rider, The A-Team and Robin of Sherwood.

Wow what a blast from the past. Look In had work by, if memory serves me well, Arthur Ranson, John Bolton, Mike Noble and the wonderful Martin Asbury among others. It was THE COMIC of the seventies.
