TV 045: Freewheelers (Private Eye) - Laurie Johnson

Freewheelers was made by Southern Television and ran for seven series between 1967 and 1973. The premise was kids versus villains and in some ways, was a precursor for The Famous Five dramatisations that unfolded in 1978 - also a product of Southern.

It was consistently entertaining with decent scripts and reliable guest stars. The dramatic string-laden theme tune was written by Laurie Johnson back in 1962 and was previously used for early editions of World In Action.

Comments and feedback are welcome.
