In Pigeon Street, their wings, wings beat!
18 July 2002 | by (Liverpool, Britain) – See all my reviews

I do not believe that nobody can remember this excellent See-saw programme of the early '80s! It was so colourful and trippy, and I looked forward to seeing it every Wednesday (although it was so long ago, I can remember even what day it was on). I was born in 1980, so I must've watched the repeats.

From the suspiciously Paul Macartney soundalike singing the theme tune, which was sung jazzily and monotone at the same time, and from excellent characters, like long distance Clara (a very pretty long distance driver, like Denzil from Fools and Horses, yet possibly the first female to EVER take up a job like this) to the Jamaican style window cleaner (Forgot his name though I loved his stripey hat, I could almost eat the candy colours off it)! The pet shop owner with the parrot (it might've been a budgie though)and a moustache was one of my favourites.

The guy who held it together was the narrator, George Layton. His voice is instantly recognisable, distinguised yet comforting. I can only remember his voice in it, even playing the girl characters.

Forget inane jumbled up childrens silliness such as the Teletubbies and their rip-offs, the Tweenies. This MUST be re-shown. I have a feeling if it does it could be remade and turned into a cult classic
