Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Telecast twice weekly, on Mondays and Thursdays, the BBC soap opera Starr and Company was set in Sullbridge, a community 50 miles south of London. The stories focused on the Starrs, a family of manufacturers who turned out buoys for the maritime trade. Among the regulars was Nancy Nevinson (who later played Mrs. Shine in the longer-lasting British soap EastEnders). Created by Donald Bull, Starr and Company debuted in 1958 and ran for 77 25-minute episodes, all of which aired live.
