The screams at 00:18 and at 00:37 are sound-bytes taken from "Skellington" a track from the double live album "Colosseum Live!" of 1971, by British progressive rock / blues / jazz fusion band "Colosseum" and their vocalist at the time, Chris Farlowe.

.... oh, I think Uriah Heep 'Dreams' was the music for the closing sequence, if I remember rightly :)

Awesome ! I loved this show, the graphics, and the theme tune taken from 'Dreams' on the Uriah Heep album 'Wonderworld'. I didn' realise until today that Paul Holmes hosted it though. Far out !

Designer Ron Highfield came up with the name when he walked into a production meeting in the Avalon office and said "it sounds like a grunt machine in here" Producer Brian Lennane said ..thats it!

Great to see this after more than 30 years! I remember the opening sequence with the guy with the clock in his head and the "wah ah wah" sound. The other pix used to give me the creeps, I can I see why, as I was just a kid at the time. Thanks for posting this wonderfully trippy piece of Kiwi music nostalgia!
