Oh my God! Think this means that, deep within the crypt of the BBC, these things might still be laying about??
I remember watching "Doctor Who" on PBS back in the early 80s. I remember seeing one of the thruster packs attached to the top of a docking tube as set dressing. Not as good a view as that. I don't remember which Doctor it was, probably Tom Baker.
Good recall! But different BBC Sci-Fi show!
From Blake's 7, episode 2, "Space Fall":
