If I remember rightly this episode (MATES) or at least part of it concerns some teenage lads who have a (stolen) bike. One of the boys was played by David Hartley who was a school pal of mine at the time it was aired. BTW his mum and dad ran Lionel Street Chippy - the best fish and chip shop in our town, Burnley (sadly long since closed down). It looks like he went on to do a few more TV roles but can anyone tell me if he is the same David Hartley who appeared in an episode of SPENDER (ep. Puck) which had a hockey plot?
...now I do it just to watch their f----n' expression change.
