website has now been running since November 2000, has moved twice,

We house some of the original costumes, many private photos taken
by the crew, the surviving costume design sketches by Raymond
Childe, and a host of publicity photos, magazine articles, exclusive
interviews, and details of original props, not to mention details

come on in - the T-Set is alive and kicking and ready for you
within these pages!
heard of T-Bag?
Well let me give a brief introduction...
"T-Bag" series was a product of Thames Television (now
part of Fremantle Media) and ran from the early Eighties to the
early Nineties. It was written by Lee Pressman and Grant Cathro
(writers of Americanised burger sitcom "Spatz", "Mike
and Angelo" and various episodes of "The Tomorrow People").
The basic storyline in each series was that a power-crazed witch
(T-Bag) had taken up residence inside some object in a junk shop
belonging to a boy (Thomas) and his Grandad. She would oust whoever
else was living in the object and create a T-Room for herself. T-Bag
would then make her presence known by kidnapping Thomas (who was
thenceforth known as T-Shirt) and forcing him to be her servant
(or T-Caddy) to keep her magical powers strong by making endless
cups of tea from the leaves of her evil T-Plant.
the picture comes a sweet, innocent young girl who then happens
across the object in the shop and meets the character that has been
usurped by T-Bag. Invariably, that character knows how to banish
T-Bag (always involving a number of mystical artefacts that T Bag
has stolen and scattered about the place so as to avoid banishment).
The young girl then has to go and collect them all back up again
and restore them to their rightful place.
are some variations to this story, but the outcome is almost always
that T-Bag is destroyed in the end. That's the intro, now click

One last word before you go on - I have produced all of the images
and the content of this site myself and have spent many long hours
doing it, so if anyone out there is thinking of producing another
T-Bag Web page, please could you email
me and ask if you wish to use any images, sounds, etc. before
you use them? If you do, then I can supply a link to your site here,
Good news and bad news on the T. Bag DVD
The good news: Lee Pressman has been in touch with
Revelation. Unfortunately, the closure of HMV has hit the industry hard,
but there is still hope. They are still willing to release the box set
of T. Bag, in a decorative teacaddy style box. All it would take is for
a proposal to be put forward to a website called Kickstarter, and for
T. Bag fans to pledge money towards it before it is released. A minimum
number of buyers would have to pledge money, up front, in order for it
This leads to the bad news:
In order for the box set release to go ahead, they
would have to raise £36,000. Therefore if 300 fans were to pledge
money, they would have to pledge at least £120 each!!!! The boxset
would be a limited edition, however, and each investor would get their
name on the box and be a part of T. Bag history.
If we want to get this thing released IN FULL,
then we are going to have to raise a lot of money.
I'm not sure how this all works in detail, but
I will consult Lee and find out where pledges are to be made. Please contact
me if you are interested in pledging money (use "T. Bag DVD"
as the subject), and we can see how much interest there is out there.
I guess if we can get large numbers (i.e. more than 300 people), then
the amount that each would have to pay will decrease.
the first and second series are being released, we want them all!
Come on people, let's keep up the pace!
being able to watch T-Bag with a crystal clear picture that doesn't
look as though it has been copied again and again and again and
again and.... Imagine being able to watch it over and over without
fear of the video chewing up your precious recordings. Imagine
not having to worry about where you store your ancient recordings
in case they go mouldy and are ruined, instead having resilient
disks that can last up to 100 years (apparently). Let's get T-Bag
released on DVD. Sign
the meantime, don't forget to head over to Fantom Films to pick
up your copy of the T. Bag Reunion Documentary!
