Anyone Remember Follyfoot?
This week I heard a choir practising a song that I knew but couldn’t place. Then I heard it twice on the radio. Intrigued I looked it up and found it to be the theme tune from the TV series, Follyfoot, from the very early 80s.
It brought back a host of memories, not least because I lived just miles from the village of Follifoot where it was filmed and set. Members of my family, several of whom worked for Yorkshire Television at the time, worked on the programme. It also brought back memories of one of my early writing heroines, Monica Dickens, who wrote the book the series was originally based on.
She was a huge influence on me, shaping my early reading choices and I used to haunt the local library looking for her books.
It reminds me that even then, I wanted to be a writer.
