Very interesting, thank you Barney  >41<

And a very well deserved award at that. Tony Essex was an excellent executive producer and the cast were all second to none.

Oh and Gillian Blake was absolutely gorgeous  >95<

Yes I agree, lovely to see a bit of the past. Time certainly does fly, I'll be sixty in July. Seems like only yesterday I was a teenager watching Follyfoot, and dreaming of meeting someone like Steve. >95< >316<. Ah.
Will you come back.?
