CHARLIES ANGELS
Episode : Fallen Angel 1979

Charlie was discussing a jewel thief with the angels
The 3 angels in this episode were :
Cheryl Ladd
Shelley Hack
Jaclyn Smith
and
Farrah Fawcett [in a guest appearance]

In Charlies preview, he made this comment about the jewel thief Damien Roth
" Mr Roth is a man with James Bondian tastes, means and charms."

The 1979 part of Mr Roth was played by Timothy Dalton !
7 Years later Timothy Dalton played his FIRST James Bond part in 1986 !

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Farrah_Fawcett_iconic_pinup_1976.jpg

I think this one clearly confirms Bayman's seasonal prediction.
However, upon a little more research, the image was taken in the summer of 1976. Maybe a cold day in LA?

From Vanity Fair........

Farrah Fawcett’s perky, 70s pinup pose was the picture seen around the world—or at least on every teenage boy’s wall.

With millions of copies sold, [according to the Smithsonian] it is the best-selling poster of all time. C’mon, who could resist that voluminous hair, infectious smile, and, of course, that suit!

If the poster company behind the shoot had its way, however, the red swimsuit would have never made it into the frame.

Fawcett was still relatively unknown at that point, as Charlie’s Angels had not yet debuted on ABC, and they thought a racy shot was their best chance to sell posters.

Recalls photographer Bruce McBroom to Entertainment Weekly, “I said [to Farrah], ‘He wants you in a bikini,’ and she said, ‘I don’t have a bikini.’” So, she went into her closet and put on what she had, did her own hair and makeup, and flashed her signature megawatt smile.

The colorful background? A blanket from Mexico that McBroom had in the back of his 1937 pickup truck.

Fawcett herself chose the final shot to send to the company. “She told me later that she had picked out her top two favorites and marked them on the slides,” McBroom told Time. “It was Farrah’s pose, Farrah’s suit, Farrah’s idea. She picked that shot. She made a lot of money for him and for herself, and made me semifamous.”

When asked why he thinks the photograph became iconic, McBroom told American Photo, in an interview, that he was unsure. “I have tried over the years to understand why the Farrah poster attracted so much interest from so many people. I think it was a lucky combination of this wholesome, beautiful, all-American girl looking directly at you with a dazzling smile and a red suit that covered a lot but revealed a little.”

I have vague recollections of reading that the red swimsuit was an Australian brand

Four pages and not one mention of one of the all time great Australian shows:

Prisoner

Some of you might need a lesson with the press for this insolence, or a stint in the pound.

The final season is currently airing on TV Hits, while the going rate for the current incarnation of DVD's at around $120 per year/season (though if you rummage through the DVD piles at Cheap as Chips, it's rumoured that there are some DVD's of the show available for $10).
