Streets Apart, 1988

Streets Apart is one of those many forgotten sitcoms, but this time from the BBC.  It starred Amanda Redman and ran for two series in 1988 and 1989, twenty four episodes in total.

The series was well received and sold well around the world, yet it never gets a regular repeat showing.


Sylvie and Bernie, are two childhood sweethearts whose paths have taken very different routes.  When they reunite by accident and neither is entirely truthful about what happened in between.

      Nice to hear from you again, we look forward to it. No specifics on words, our readers will clearly be interested in the back story, how it came about getting commissioned you know the type of thing. I think it will be fascinating to get the story behind a sitcom from the actual writer and think it will go down well with our readers.

    I still sing the theme tune “2 different people in 2 different worlds”, bit cheesy looking back.
