Interster (Afrikaans, Inter-star) was a weekly science-fiction puppet television show made for children and shown in South Africa from the late 1970s. South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) children’s programming was quite innovative during the late 1970s to early 1980s — the impossiblity of purchasing Thunderbirds forced the SABC to produce Interster, but also the technical challenge offered the opportunity to truly flex the SABC’s creative muscles.

An intensive Nethunt by me several months ago, when I first got wind that this existed came up with zilch. Then suddenly the above Wikipedia entry appeared; now those two other Wikipedia items have appeared too.
There isn’t any fan website. There are no YouTube/Google or other vids. There are no photos.
Even P2P comes up dry!
This is the Internet, goddammit! There must be someone in the Vast Out There who knows something about this. Who has pictures. Who knows if it’s on DVD. If it’s ever been shown outside of South Africa.
