Early recollections
28 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One of my earliest recollections of TV include a memory of this program. Actually I remember little more than that this program was set (duh) on a waterfront. What is, however, indelibly imprinted on my mind is from the end of the program. As the credits rolled, the background was a moonlit seascape as one would see it through a porthole. That with the theme song playing and the sound of a horn- I suppose from the tugboat- has haunted my mind through the years. I believe I can also hear and feel the wind from the electric fan in my grandfathers house where I watched the program. I would really like to hear that theme song and fog horn again. I am looking online for a sound link but as yet have been unsuccessful. I may have to just buy the whole enchilada and get the programs. Who knows I may enjoy them too, but sometime memories are best left unaltered.
