Default TV Prog title help...

This is driving me nuts...

In the 80's there was a tv series, I can't recall the channel. It featured a country music soundtrack and was issued on tape and I THINK the title was Quicksilver, but it doesn't show in any search so I'm guessing that's me old mind playing up. The singers were not the then usual crowd and might have included the likes of Tim Spall but I really cant recall.

I liked the music and had the tape but its gone now and I cant replace it because I do not know what it was called.

Anyone know what im babbling about

Now that's a positive aspect of the Internet. Frank and human memory One-algorithims Zero! Puts me in mind of Timothy Spall and his "photographic" memory in the Archive Library-"Shooting The Past" BBC2 [1999] which I've been watching again recently. I've got it from that date in the VHS section but a DVD turned up fro 50p. Buried treasure in itself!

There was a series called Quicksilver. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0091814/?ref_=ttfc_fc_tt

Here is a listing of Timothy Spall's work. https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001758/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1

I thought Frank had solved this one but apparently not All the same, it illustrates the power of the the human brain which is [at present] still superior to AI. There may always be a route somewhere and DNA [just coding?] may be everything. Soon we may no longer be concerned about what we can't remember as the technology will tell us

A recent long lost family program, that went almost unnoticed, solved "impossible" genetic searches by combining the traditional written [analogue] records with DNA searches. These went in the "back door" [as-it-where] by locating family members on data bases that matched via cousins etc . Program Archival identification may have similar options in future as the data continues to build [and build].

There's a list of British television music shows here:-

Also a bar at the top of the page so you can select years other than the 1980's

How strange, I absolutely loved that series the first time around and also renewed my acquaintance via DVD. Small world.
