This was one of the best kid's TV programmes of the year. Made more interesting to watch as I was working as a stand-in manager and occasional projectionist (for a Mr Hamilton) at Hale Cinema (between Hale and Altrincham in Cheshire - as it was - now Trafford.) at the time. I had to be around some of the time as the set 'decoration' was being constructed, such as the dummy walls just outside the cinema entrance, and was an occasional background extra. I lived in Byrom Street back then, a short distance from the cinema, now sadly demolished.
