Sixties Tea-time treat
A series that I would love to see again, I have memories of it, I must have been about 7 or 8 at the time. This short lived series concerned a group of young people running their own local paper - Four boys and a girl - Peter, Andy, Tubby, Swot, and Fred. It's made possible by their local paper the Cliffsea Reporter allowing them to use their printing press. Their escapades included storylines such as a post office robbery and the discovery of a World war 2 unexploded bomb. I found it an endearing series with the young leads giving enthusiastic performances. The series was filmed on location in the Seaford/Newhaven area which doubled for the fictional town of Cliffsea. At time of writing there are 5 episodes existing out of the original run of 19 in the archives.
