Radio Time Feature


Radio Times for 14th to 20th April 2018 flashes back to Radio Times 16th to 22nd April 1983 when the cast made their first and only cover appearance. I hadn't realised how rare for non BBC made programmes to grace the cover of the magazine.

"Beautiful Dreamer" comes from the season 2 episode "And The Winner Is?" where it was performed by Valerie Landsburg.

The original was written by Paul Jabara and Jay Asher in 1982 and recorded by Paul Jabara for his "Greatest Hits and Misses" album released in 1989. Paul also wrote the season 1 Song "Hope".

To See Your Face Again - Carrie Hamilton - Song Of The week


To See Your Face Again - Carrie Hamilton - Song Of The week



Time passes like a dream
Moments come and go
I see your face in a quiet storm
Call your name there's no answer
Tell me you can hear me
Say that you can hear me
If only you can hear me

Tell you of a time
We shared so long ago
It seems like only yesterday we laughed, we talked
Tell me you can hear me
Say that you can hear me
If only you can hear me 

If I could have anything
I'd wish for this my friend
To turn back the hands of time
And see your face again
Where did you go
Why did you leave
Say it isn't so
I still don't believe

There must be a way to change what has passed
The memory of you will always last
Tell me you can hear me
Say that you can hear me
If only you can hear me
If I could have anything
I'd wish for this my friend
To turn back the hands of time
And see your face again
