On January 4, 2015, I will be shutting down the server that hosts The TV IV website. It has been a very long time since I've been able to put any decent amount of time into the site, and ad revenue is plummeting. I think it is time to shut it down or hand it off to someone who can keep it going properly. If you are interested in taking over the site's code and data, contact administrators at --CygnusTMtalk

Joe 90 is a children's animated sci-fi program that aired on ITV. This was another Supermarionation show from the world of Gerry Anderson. It tells the story of Joe McClaine, a 9 year old boy like no other, for he is an agent for W.I.N. - The World Intellegence Network. When called upon for a mission he is given the brain pattern of a person who would be best suited to help him with a mission. For example he could be given the knowledge of a pilot, and know exactly how to fly a plane. He gets the knowledge by utilising his father's (Mac) invention BIG RAT - Brain Impulse Galvanascope Record And Transfer. By being seated in the Rat Trap, a rotating spherical chamber, recorded brain impulses could be transferred to Joe's brain, enabling him to do almost anything.
