Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Officially a "Schools Production" for the BBC, South was designed with younger viewers in mind. In terms of ratings, by rights it should have been beneficial that the program was a spin-off of the spectacularly successful daily serial Brookside, featuring two of that series' most popular recurring characters: Sean McKee as Jamie and Justine Kerrigan as Tracy. Unfortunately, the new series never got past its first two 25-minute episodes. South was aired by Britain's Channel 4 in 1988.
