Sweet Sixteen, 1983

Lost in the mists of time comes this six part BBC sitcom starring Penelope Keith.

Running for just 1 series of 6 episodes in 1983, the series never really caught on in the UK, despite Penelope Keith in the leading role.  To the best of our knowledge the series has never been repeated on any BBC channel.


Helen Walker, is a 41-year-old widow with a 19 year old son, James, who runs a building firm started by her late Father John Carrington.  She falls in love with the 25-year-old architect Peter Morgan and becomes pregnant with his child. Issues between the two arise due to their age difference.
