This is the 1984 SUMMER SPECIAL (adorned with a publicity still of Colin Baker snapped in Hammersmith Park, right behind BBC Television Centre... I've walked across that bridge myself!), dedicated to the show's merchandising. And jolly good it was too.
The cover copy says it all really... pretty much every aspect of the show's spin-offs gets coverage (even sweets!).
The interview with BBC Merchandising's (now, many iterations later, BBC Worldwide) Christopher Crouch is interesting... not just for what he says but because it was conducted in the Langham opposite BBC Broadcasting House. Now a top-notch hotel (again) but in the mid-eighties it was (yet more) offices for the sprawling BBC!
