I remember this short-lived series as clearly as if I'd been watching it yesterday. It was repeated quite late at night sometime in the early months of 1981, as it was originally made for ITV's morning Schools educational slot. Through it we followed the lives of some trendy East End kids and their escapades around London. It was created by Phil Redmond, the man behind another TV gem 'Grange Hill', and featured some great title music by the group The Pretends which was sung by Chrissie Hynde. In one episode, the goofy-teethed character portrayed by Michele Winstanley, (alas I can't remember her character's name.) is flashed by a pervert in an underpass. It sounds sordid, but is done with such humour, it's hilarious to watch!! Most of the time, Winstanley's character is barely understandable, as the braces in her mouth restrict her speech so much.
I certainly hope that it turns up on one of the satellite digital channels in the U.K.
