I was 8 years old when this ITV take on Seaside Special aired. At the time all I could remember was the theme tune which ITV used the following year for advertising their summer season and the TV times, needless to say a second series wasn't commissioned. After catching some episodes on you tube it seems obvious that for it's time when there was only 3 channels on UK TV, people were easily entertained and the producers knew they could away with making shows like Hi! Summer. It's all singing, dancing and general enforced jollity came across as cringe worthy and a waste of the cast's talents, especially veterans Leslie Crowther and Anna Dawson who was much better employed on the sketch comedy What's On Next and the late Lena Zavaroni.
