Anyone remember the mid-eighties?
Back in the day TVS produced its answer to Charlie's Angels. This slightly
ropy spin-off from LWT's 'The Gentle Touch' focused on three tasty lasses sorting
out underground crime in the South East. Those of you who (I'm astounded to discover)
have read this far are by now asking 'WTF has this got to do with slope soaring?'
All tastes catered for-
Leslie Ash aimed at the 'I'm easy' hand relievers
Jill Gascoine dishing out the dom for submissive bishop bashers
and the posh bird for the more sophisticated five knuckle shufflers
Well, in answer to your question, the entire series was produced and edited at the Maidstone Studios,
so they used local spots when out-and-about filming.
And the tenuous link needed to weave this into the sloping world?...let's see if
any of our favourite soaring sites featured as a setting for the action shall we?
(the blue text will link you to the footage)
whooh! look out!....
quick exit from Volvo man, he's over-run his allotted
sloping time and is rushing home to avoid
a bollocking from the missus!
out for an afternoon pootle round the lanes...
well we're on Common Road, but we've missed
the turning into the car park for Blue Bell Hill.....
one glance up at the sky to look at the retro gliders
and we're rolling off into the ditch!
