Here come the Double Deckers
13 February 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

What an absolute gem of a programme this was. It doesn't seem to have been repeated on British TV, but Youtube has the start sequence http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-7Etul2mGxU 70's kids programmes were never better than this! The programme had an excellent 'feel good factor', the plots were totally geared to kids and it seems a shame that they didn't make more. Peter Firth (Scooper) has been a very successful actor, with Brinsley Forde (Spring) going on to form 'Aswad'. None of the other actors have done much beyond the early seventies. There does not seem to be too much information on the net regarding this programme, which is a real shame as I am sure that a lot of 40 year olds would like a trip down Memory Lane
