Nyree Dawn Porter,
Tom Howard is made redundant from his job as a senior aircraft designer and decides to invest his skill, time and redundancy money in a run-down local boat building yard. Without his investment the yard would certainly have gone bust but the decision puts a great strain on his marriage and causes problems with other members of his family. The various family members gradually come to terms with their changing circumstances and the consequences of Howard's decision. Written by

The theme tune for the series was reworked (with lyrics by Don Black) into a ballad "Always There", performed by Marti Webb over the closing titles of each episode during the second series in 1986. The song later made it to the top twenty in the charts. See more »
Oh how much I loved Howard's Way, and just imagine my happiness when I saw that it was being shown on UK TV Drama every weekday at 12 and then at 6. It is also repeated on Sundays at 2pm.
Watching it again takes me back to the 80s. A time when Sunday evening's were made eating crumpets doused in butter, drinking tea and watching slimy old Ken Masters in his brilliant white suits. Along with Jan Howard and her 'cutting edge' fashion house (mmmn, polka dots and American football style shoulder pads)
Was gutted to read on this site that Charles and Jack are no longer with us - god bless ya, and thanks for making a very warm childhood seem even warmer.
Howard's Way is available on DVD from this link: http://www.play.com/play247.asp?pa=srmr&page=title&r=R2&title=867783
