This is a non-profit-making website devoted to an appreciation of the TeleVision series, “The Champions”, created by Monty Berman and Dennis Spooner, and produced in 1966 by the Incorporated Television Co. Ltd. (ITC).
 
It has no affiliation with, or endorsement from, the current copyright holders, and has been created as an archival information resource.
 
It is dedicated, with respect, to the people who made the series—both those who performed before the camera, and those whose skills were exercised behind it.
 
Especially, it is here to celebrate the imagination and humanity of storyteller Dennis Spooner and his team of writers, and for Lord Lew Grade, without whom much of the television now revered as “classic” would never have come into being.

Surivivors of a ’plane crash in the mountains of Tibet, where they encountered the people of an unknown civilisation, who mended their bodies and endowed them with fantastic qualities and skills…
 
…skills both physical and mental to the peak of human performance…
 
…skills which are a secret to be closely guarded…
 
…a secret which enables them to use their powers to their best advantage, as the champions of law, order and justice…
 
…operators of the international agency of Nemesis!
AN APOLOGY
This website was forged a hundred years ago, in the crucible of cross-platform compatibility, at a time when the average screen resolution was 640 x 480 pixels and it took thirty seconds to download a 300 x 400 pixel JPEG…
Things have changed since then, and the content now appears rather small and lost, but to redesign and recreate its countless pages, in order to exploit latterday widescreen aesthetics and broadband access speeds, is a task that would challenge even someone with the enhanced abilities of a survivor of a ’plane crash in the mountains of Tibet.
So, reluctantly, I have decided that it will have to remain as it is—for the present.
Besides, that screen magnification tool is pretty effective, I’ve found…
Yours,
with appropriate humility,
Mark.
