'The series is a collectors' piece in a way, for it carries out a splendid idea with endearing simplicity. They could move the whole thing to children's TV without changing a comma.' So wrote Daily Mail critic Peter Black last December.
And about a hundred days after they were first seen on BBC-2 four of the episodes will be shown specially for children.
Humphrey Hastings is not the easiest man to live with. Most of his family would agree that his skill as an inventor and amateur scientist is sometimes overshadowed by his wild enthusiasm.
But what takes place in the Hastings' Twickenham house did happen-or at least could have done so. Most of the machines he uses are real, those which are not have been built from original plans by the BBC's Visual Effects Department. Among them-a nine-foot airship, an ancient telegraph, even a hang-glider.
It makes an intriguing series: and there is a splendid performance from Dudley Foster who plays four generations of Humphrey.

A new season of Britain's great laughter-makers.
[Starring] David Tomlinson, Peter Sellers
with Wilfrid Hyde White
Up the Creek launches a new season for British Film Comedies, following the same pattern as the season which began last December.
Lt. Humphrey Fairweather, R.N., has gone too far. Much too far. The last of a series of disastrous attempts to prove to the Navy that his rocket invention is better than theirs only succeeds in convincing them that no guided missile station will be safe until he is out of harm's way.
His superior's problem is unexpectedly solved with the discovery that H.M.S. Berkeley, an ancient destroyer, now ending her days as the oldest member of the 'Mothball Fleet', has been inadvertently left without a commanding officer for nearly two years. By appointing Fairweather as her new Commanding Officer they will kill two birds with one stone...
Val Guest directs with his customary pace, and the script bears more than a passing resemblance to that masterpiece of the 1930s Oh! Mr. Porter, the Will Hay classic recently shown on BBC-1, but the transposition to a naval background rings a great many changes on the theme.

A programme about hymns written and narrated by Robin Ray.
My idea of heaven is eating patis de jote gras to the sound of trumpets. (The Rev. Sydney Smith)
When you associate the Kingdom of God with the British Empire you are in considerable trouble (Lord Soper)
Please God keep us good and, by the way, we believe in the Trinity (A Medieval Monks' Hymn)
Hymns form part of our heritage and when the words are forgotten the tunes remain. Tunes that instantly recapture thoughts and feelings and emotions lost in our childhood. But what makes a good hymn?-the tune, the words, or its sentiment?
Are the great hymns of the past 200 years-which often dwell on sin and guilt-now out of date? How clinical and 'with-it' can a modern hymn afford to be before it loses all emotional overtones?
These are some of the questions posed in this programme, which features
The Archbishop of Canterbury, Lord Soper, The Rev. Jack Putterill, John Betjeman,
General Frederick Coutts, David Holbrook, Tommy Trinder, Dr. Erik Routley, Frank Rea, The Billy Graham Crusade Choir, The Joy Strings, The children of Ivydale School, London, S.E.15
