Absolutely Classic
6 September 2000 | by DavieGSee all my reviews

I was fortunate enough to grow up with this show, as those good people at RTE (Ireland's national tv station) used to show it regularly. What can I say? I loved it, and still do. One of the most important aspects of this programme is, for me, the unforgettable theme tune sung by Terry Bush - "maybe tomorrow, I'll wanna settle down, until tomorrow I'll just keep movin' on". This tune is still sung by me, my friends, and many like-minded Irish & Canadian people I've met who share my love & respect for this show. Definitely a cult classic.
