Cockles from cockle-sea
Bare in mind I was only 10 when this short lived TV series was screened back in 1984, I suspect I contributed to the viewing rating (like most people who watched it) because I lived in HerneBay where it was shot. Most of my primary school friends seemed to get in it as cameos on BMX bikes or as dancers....alas I didn't. The plot seemed to revolve around a business man returning home trying to regenerate his home town...taking on an aging Winter Gardens venue (the classic Herne Bay Kings Hall) and trying to make a go of it.
I've tried getting a copy from the BBC but have been told its been deleted from their back catalogue....
Im sure it will appear at some point on the internet, until then I have nostalgic (if not fond) memories!
