Three agents working for Geneva-based secret organisation
Nemesis crash somewhere up in the Himalayas. The cold and
their injuries seem certain to kill them until they are taken
in by some mysterious monks who nurse them back to health.
However, the big surprise is not so much they live but that
on their recovery they have superhuman powers. The three Champions,
Craig Sterling, Sharron MacReady and Richard Barrett, are
all sworn to secrecy about their new powers [both improved
strength and heightened senses] and upon their return vow
to use them for the greater good of humanity...
The show's basic premise is as simple as it is neat - and
as a result The Champions' winning formula has the
ability to rescue even duff episodes from being total flops.
And at it's best the series is still quite effective such
as the episode Autokill. Moreover, our three stars
are an interesting, if slightly humourless, bunch with MacReady
adding a welcome, if rare, tough woman to the mix.
It's a given that fans of ITC spy shows will want this set
but what about less ardent supports? Well, the episodes have
been given a cursory clean, which is nice to see, although
matt shots and some stock footage still looks a little rough.
The sound is clean if a little thin - but what else would
you expect from a show this age - and there are bugger all
extras. But the episodes themselves more than make up for
any overall shortfalls making this box set a nice addition
to anyone's vintage TV archive.
