Now we are talking. A classic Tyne Tees kids programme set in my home town of Gateshead. I even remember a scene for this being filmed next to my primary school and the programme makers cutting out we scruffy urchins sticking our Vs up when we thought the camera was looking. The Paper Lads centred around the trials and tribulations of working as a person delivering papers in the North East of England. The Newsagent shop was unfeasibly owned by Dave the Winchester Barman from Minder who has the most un Geordie accent going and the paper Lads and Lasses were the usual stage school types from all over the North East of England (See Byker Grove!!) so I always used to laugh my head off at someone from Middlesbrough 80 miles away and with a completely different accent pretending to be local and delivering newspapers!! Tyne Tees Television and the North East as a whole must have been very proud of this programme as whenever there was a technical fault Tyne Tees would play the Paper Lads theme until the fault was sorted, Plus Tudor crisps used a Paper Lads themed one for their Nationally acclaimed avert " Hey Jock deliva these an a'll give yu a canny bag a' Tuda oot me wages!" "Whey aye man fo Tuda a'd climb a moontin" "Pity that lifts oot ov orda!" Jaunty version of the Blaydon Races!!
