Comedy drama serial Get Lost followed a pair of northern schoolteachers, Neville Keaton and Judy Threadgold, who get involved in a search for Judy’s missing husband.
The serial carries clear echoes of Plater’s later classic comedy drama series The Beiderbecke Affair and is just as good. Frank Ricotti who provided the memorable music for Beiderbecke is also on hand with a nicely jazz tinged soundtrack.
