Derek Farr starred in Nightingale’s Boys, a seven-part ITV series about Bill “Tweety” Nightingale, an elderly teacher who set out to discover what had become of some of the pupils from his sixth form class of 1949 – including “Izzy”, Big Sid and A.J.
One’s now a governor, another a leading local tycoon, and one is in the army though no one can think why.
The last of ‘Nightingale’s boys’ he meets up with is his own son, David (Alec Sabin) which also precipitates a meeting with his estranged wife Agnes (Barbara Lott)
