    Default Question for old timers

    Back in the mid 1970's, I saw a British TV kid show, that featured various neighborhood kids with different talents and personalities. In one particular episode, the mechanically-inclined kid decides the group would build a hovercraft after witnessing an N4 operating. That entire episode was about them building a hovercraft (it wasn't a real one). That show is what sparked my interest so many years ago.

    What was the name of that show?

    If it was about " neighborhood kids" it couldn't have been British, we only have neighbourhood kids ) We'll get you speaking English soon Terry )



    I suspect it was a programme called 'Here Come the Doubledeckers' about 7 children that lived on a double decker London bus. A very musical programme, but it followed their adventures and involvement in a variety of science type projects. I think that Jane Seymour made her television debut in the show.

    Sounds like the very first episode of the Double Deckers.



    http://www.thedoubledeckers.com/episodes.htm

    "Brains decides to build a hovercraft and enlists the help of the others to construct it. While the gang takes a break, Tiger innocently and accidently finds herself in the driver seat and the hovercraft "takes off". Unable to stop, Tiger speeds through town creating quite a commotion."
