A Happy Upcoming New Year to everyone! A gift from our fan group: the
complete sixth Avengers series in Russian TV multi voice-over on Rutracker.org
Information:
The latest episodes of the 6th Avengers series on Rutracker.org are unique material.
In Russia, these episodes (except for episode 17) were broadcast only once - on the "Petersburg - Channel 5" TV channel at the turn of 1994/95. Considering that the series was shown on this TV channel in the morning, not many could afford to watch it.
A few years later, the series was shown on the Ukrainian TV channel "TET", and now, thanks to Andrei Nikolaev, we can be content with that invaluable time of Russian-language television in the 1990s.

Also, special thanks to Toyterrier, who gave us the kind "nostalgic notes" of our past in excellent quality.

Enjoy watching everyone!

Fan group creativity
Today one of the Steedumbrella fan group founders, Aleksei Sidorov, announced that he is writing a new poem about Steed. This poem (the second in his creativity about Steed) is an adaptation of K. Chukovsky's "Doctor Aybolit" and is made in the humorous style typical of the author. Aleksei has already shown me a part of his work and I think that this magnificent creation can be put on a par with his "Saga of the Brave". An excellent piece, which successfully combines original findings and the author's classic humour. Posting soon...
