    Truckers 1987 BBC Series Shot in St Helens

    Mark Cunliffe
    By Mark Cunliffe,
    Does anyone remember the 1987 BBC series Truckers starring James Hazeldine, Phil Davis and Kenneth Cope, to name a few. It was actually shot and based in St Helens/Warrington, with the yard along the Clock Face Road, A569. Lots of mentions of 'the St Helens butter mountain' that was always waiting to be delivered! The full series is available to watch on YouTube here:     I was wondering if any one has any memories of it at all? Watching it or it being filmed here? Was it a big deal at all? In '87, I was only a little sprog of 8 years old so if it was a big deal it really passed me by. It's left me thinking of other programmes shot or set in St Helens; Ken Loach's Wednesday Play The Rank and File was of course about the Pilks Strike of 1970 but, due to pressure on high, they had to fictionalise the events depicted, relocating the action to Stoke. The Capone Investment was a 1974 series starring John Thaw, Glyn Owen and Peter Sallis set in Haydock..but not filmed there. The second series of Common as Muck, the binmen drama starring Edward Woodward and Neil Dudgeon, had an episode filmed at Town Ground greyhound track in Sutton. As it was literally round the corner from me and I'd been a big fan of the first series, I wandered over to try and watch some filming one day but only saw the actors having their dinner on the catering bus. Spotted a few familiar faces in the crowd on the episode itself. Were there any other programmes made in St Helens?

    Trying to get in touch with J R Glover, wrote his HND project on St Helens sandworks in 1961, so would be about 80 now, maybe retired in Rainford. Anyone know him?
