Hmm, I remember Judith, Maggie and Howard. I think the show had seriously gone
downhill by the Phillipa days (early 90s?) - less about the science and
technology behind the features, and more about dazzling people with glitzy
effects (same thing that happened to Horizon and all the others).

Sounds like that might have been a bit too early, though. I think Raymond
Baxter left in the mid-late 70s, and there likely wouldn't have been enough
home machines around then to justify the flashing-square feature. I'd guess at
it being early-80s.
