Portland Bill was another wonderful children's adventure very much in the style of Postman Pat, Gran, The Herbs, and The Clangers. It concerned the day to day life of Portland Bill (Head lighthouse man of the Lighthouse Guillemot Rock). He is helped by the other lighthouse men Ross and Cromarty, and his faithful hound, Dogger.
The nearest village to the lighthouse was on the mainland and it was called McGuillycuddy. The setting is a copy of the real Portland Bill lighthouse and Isle of Portland with placenames changed. Most of its characters were named after British Sea Areas and coastal weather stations and other words that occur in shipping forecasts such as: Eddie Stone who owns the village shop; and other local residents Mrs Lundy, Fastnet the fisherman and Finisterre the crofter.
The adventures were written by John Grace and were produced in 1983 for Granada Television.
This rip contains the second 12 episodes.
