of the cast. Originally it was broadcast in 1978 but became a regular TV series in
The company that made these chips is, we believe, no longer in business. They made a
beautiful product, but between production costs and the commission that they had to pay

There are two chips the 10/- (Ten Shillings) in gold lettering on a blue background. The
other chip was a £1 with green lettering on a red background. At the time £1 was a lot of
You get both chips which we think are very interesting, especially at this price.
Remember that they are at least 38 years old. An interesting bit of history, which the internet
wishes to replace completely.
