"Steve Austin, astronaut; a man barely alive. Gentlemen, we can rebuild him. We have the technology. We have the capability to build the world's first bionic man. Steve Austin will be that man. We can make him better than he was before. Better, stronger, faster."
If you grew up in 70s Britain, particularly if you were a boy, you probably already know those words off by heart. They're from one of the most iconic title sequences in TV history, and anyone who was anyone used to watch the show every week. The show was, of course, The Six Million Dollar Man in which former astronaut turned test pilot Steve Austin (Lee Majors) is seriously injured while testing a new plane. He loses his right arm, his right eye and both his legs, but the government nevertheless has plans for him. They're going to turn him into a 'bionic man', giving him mechanical replacements for his missing limbs so he can perform missions that no normal man - or even team of men - could do.
See if this brings back any memories for you.
