The Paper Lads

The Paper Lads was a children’s television series created by J.G. Holland and produced by Tyne Tees Television and broadcast from 1977 to 1979. It lasted two seasons (14 episodes in total).

It was set in Newcastle upon Tyne and recounted the adventures of a group of newspaper delivery boys and girls. The Newsagent shop was owned by Glynn Edwards (Dave the Winchester Barman from Minder).

The signature tune of the series, “Back Home Once Again”, was performed by progressive rock band Renaissance, and it appears as a full-length song on their 1978 album A Song For All Seasons.
