I remember watching Truckers as a 13 year old back in 1987, when I thought it was the best thing on TV. Detail-wise I remember very little about it, other than the fact that James 'Londons Burning' Hazeldine was the main character.
My single lasting memory about the series was - ironically - the BBC announcer stating during the closing credits of the final episode that, "Truckers will be back for another run in the New Year". This proved (annoyingly) untrue, because the series disappeared almost completely without trace after that. The only person I know who has ever even heard of this series (and not the animated kids' programme of the same name) is my best mate, who I continually extolled the virtues of the programme to during its brief life nearly 20 years ago.
The chances of me ever seeing Truckers again are, I imagine, close to zero because there's clearly no market for it either on DVD or broadcast on TV, so I'll just have to make do with the memories. Shame I don't have any!
