UK / ITV-HTV-Action Plus Productions / 13x30m / made in 1970 – but never broadcast
Producers: Kenneth F. Rowles, Simon Brent Original Idea: Ken Rowles, John Pitt / Script Editor: Tony Williamson
Other credits (episode 1) Writers: David Bake, Steve Collins / Director: Steven Collins
The escapades of a group of Go Go dancing girls at a night-club in a Spanish holiday resort who get mixed up in various groovy adventures. The action is occasionally punctuated with short bits of animation. In the only completed story (13 were planned) “Give Me A Ring Sometime”, Carol comes into a possession of a treasure map and goes off with her DJ boyfriend Adam to look for it on a remote offshore island hotly pursued by the villain of the piece.
The programme was made on film on location in Spain but was never broadcast and only the first episode still survives, in fact only location work was completed for the first six episodes. For reasons still not really known HTV pulled funding on the show leaving it high and dry and the only episode completed remains untransmitted.
The opening title sequence shows the three girls as being the regular stars although certainly in the first episode the other two play only an incidental role.
Simon Brent is the main co-star of the episode and seems like a permanent fixture being Carol’s boyfriend and DJ/Manager of the club they work at but he is billed as a guest star so whether he featured in other episodes is not known – although it’s possible since he was also the co-producer of the show.
