Streaming service Netflix has recently launched the means for users to makes requests for shows they want to see on the platform.

we’re sure there are a lot of shows currently on rival services like Amazon Prime that will be at the top of shows “Most Requested”, but what about suggesting some classic British TV? If nothing else, it will have their heads scratching as they try to track down why loads of their British subscribers are requesting the likes of Blake’s 7, Gerry Anderson’s UFO, Fireball XL5, Sapphire and Steel, or really obscure shows such as BBC’s The Changes or ITV’s Children of the Stones!
