Newly-discharged from the RAF after World War II, Jack Ruskin, a blunt no-nonsense Yorkshireman, decides to set up his own airline, Ruskin Air Services. Something of an idealist, Jack is prepared to bend every rule in the book to achieve his goal of flying a Dakota once again. He soon does a deal with Ernie Cade, a notorious spiv who can lay his hands on any item of war surplus - for the right price - and then enlists Peter Witney as co-pilot and Jock McEvoy as maintenance engineer. But his long absences start to put a strain on his relationship with Jennie, his girlfriend.Written by
I have a copy of the series as avi files - taken from the original VHS from the TV at the time.
I thought, although memory plays tricks doesn't it? 2 series were made but of course only 1 was ever made. I would be delighted if the owners released it on DVD as I am sure many others would be., although there doesn't seem to be a desire to release series like this today, need more of the reality TV programs don't we? I do remember Charlton TV (when they were still about!) showing the series a few years ago? Roy Marsden played an excellent role as did all the characters! Excellent program worthy of being released on DVD!! Come on make it available for all!!
