    I remember it, I used to quite like it. Sorry didn't tape it and Youtube doesn't bring anything up either.

    Oh yes! It was when the fashion for mountain biking took off in this country. Seem to remember them riding Muddy Fox bikes when Muddy Fox was cool.

  • It seems to ring a bell (sic) with my memory, however I them keep getting flashes of The Pressgang to corrupt it. :wink:

    I've just checked on TheBox torrent site for "Streetwise" and they actors who appeared on it, they don't have it, so I doubt it'll be on VHS/DVD or film.

  • Randomly searched for this series on a whim tonight, and this was about the only site (besides the IMDB) that came up!

    I actually have a couple of tapes of the show in a box somewhere. If I ever get set up to digitise from VHS, I'll post some on YouTube. Probably not going to happen soon, though. I was kind of hoping, given Andy Serkis's big break, it might've been released on DVD by now. :)

    Here's the page for it at the British Film and TV Database

  • No worries! :) It won't be soon, but if you want to PM me an email address some time, I'll hang onto it so I can get in touch if it happens. Otherwise, I'll just keep this thread bookmarked.
