"London" was one of the great animal stars of the era
Entertaining children's show from Canada about the adventures of a German Shepherd who wanders across the provinces doing good deeds.
Oh how I loved this show when I was a kid. The dog's name was "London" and he was a real hero to junior TV viewers 'way back when'. I recently picked up an episode and enjoyed it just as much as I did in the '60s.
Even now, I find myself occasionally singing the theme song....... "A-driftin', the world is my friend, I'm travelin' along the road .. without end ".
These shows were so much more positive and uplifting than the idiotic garbage that's on offer these days. "London" was one of the great animal stars of the era - right up there with Flipper, Gentle Ben and Rin Tin Tin
