Knight Rider 1982 TV Intro - Opening Theme Music
80s TV - Knight Rider

Knight Rider was a hit TV Show from the USA starring David Hasselhoff as Michael Knight. The series originally aired on NBC in the U.S. before being ported over to other countries. The show ran for four seasons (90 episodes) between September 1982 and August 1986.

His futuristic Sentient car KITT featured Artificial Intelligence and actually talked to him. In reality, KITT was actually a customised Pontiac Trans-Am sports car. The voice was provided by William Daniels who also starred in the U.S. medical drama St. Elsewhere. He must have been a busy guy as this was being broadcast at the same time as Knight Rider, with six series (137 episodes) being aired on NBC between October 1982 and May 1988.

The series was also a big hit here in the UK and was shown many times on ITV, usually at the weekends. I must have watched every episode at least three times!

I believe that this annual is from 1984, although the year isn't displayed on the covers for some reason.
