Based around a small family buoy-making firm (original if nothing else!), Starr and Company was transmitted live on Mondays and Thursdays.
Set in the fictional town of Sullbridge, 50 miles south of London, it starred Philip Ray, Nancy Nevinson, Patricia Mort and Brian McDermott, but didn’t stay buoyant for long, lasting only four months.
