    Hi All, First post at a great forum. I have limited details about this kids drama TV show except that it would have been late 70's/early 80's, the protagonist was a young girl, the bad guys were (1) a young guy who drove around in a van with a big comic style dog bone on the roof and (2) a kind of Jekyll and hide character who looked like a normal guy until the girl looked at him then he kind of transformed into a horrible old trampy ugly guy. Any ideas on what tv show this was? Many thanks in advance

    Ah have had a reply on another forum. The series was "Touch and go" first shown in 1978.

    TOUCH AND GO (1978)
    This above average serial begins as a psychological drama in which a girl called Emily wakes up in hospital after a car crash. Her grasp on reality is particularly unsettling to watch especially when she's convinced to have seen something she's not supposed to. The serial then turns into a runaround with Emily and her friend Charles mixed up with a right-wing pressure group of villains called the Dedicated Few, intent on blowing up an African delegation.

    Unusually for the times the group is headed by a woman, Chairmaine played by future Eastender Sandy Ratcliff with a bitchy finesse.The seaside village and craggy cliffs backdrop invite comparisons with traditional kids adventure serials. Two particularly memorable aspects for are the blue van the gang drive with a large white bone on top which seemed to turn up when one least expected it and the face of Willy, a repulsive tramp, played with disturbing relish by Aubrey Morris
