Two Scottish children discover that not only is The Loch Ness Monster real - but that there is a whole family of 'Nessie'. Most of the yellow creatures are named after a personality trait like Eager-Ness, Sad-Ness or Silly-Ness.
I really feel sorry for the children of today, who get served up so much crap. This show never once underestimated the intelligence of its audience. The story-lines and characters were believable, intelligent, gripping and emotionally powerful, as well as being incredibly funny.
I wanted to be just like the people in this show, and I even started writing my own "newspaper"!
Lynda Day was such a great character, played with real enthusiasm by the wonderful Julia Sawalha. And the supporting cast were magnificent.
The show was not afraid to address confronting social issues that were relevant to its audience. In some ways it is quite like the "Degrassi" series.
I long to see this show repeated on television here. Oh Press Gang, I love you!
