She had one turkey Once upon a time, when NBC was a struggling network, it tried to ape the success of CBS’s The Mary Tyler Moore Show with The Avengers’ (the real one) Diana Rigg in Diana. The premise: a London fashion designer moves to New York in the hope of hitting the big time. It didn’t work, and the show was cancelled within months.
Deﬁnitely not back in time—probably a coma then The BBC did a good job re-creating the late 1960s–early 1970s ident for the 16-to-9 ratio of modern televisions for the second season of Life on Mars. What a pity the typography lets the Welsh one down, despite the good effort elsewhere.

Life in 1973 This should be worn to the Sweeney première.
Белое солнце пустыни - White Sun of the Desert: the traditional movie that cosmonauts and astronauts watch before going into space aboard a Soyuz.
This has been watched to bring luck to the mission ever since Soyuz 12 (1973), a successful return-to-flight after the disastrous Soyuz 11, in which all three crew members were killed.
Белое солнце пустыни Reblogged for the typography and hand-lettering.
There is no need for the word “Vinyl” in the shop’s name. “Heaven” just about describes any good record shop for me. Sadly, they are disappearing. It’s depressing.
By the way, Life on Mars is my favorite show to have come out in the last 10 years.
Vinyl Maybe the ‘Vinyl’ refers to the computer-done vinyl-cut lettering on the signage. Which would not have existed in 1973. The words ‘Record Shop’ are in ITC Bauhaus, from 1975. I am reading too much into this. And I love Life on Mars.
