The Kids from 47A

Does anyone remember a programme which would be on in the mid to late seventies about a family (two girls and a boy I think) that were left on their own in a flat and had to fend for themselves. Only the oldest sister worked, and they had to protect themselves from the authorities finding out and trying to split them up? It was on around tea-time.

    I remember where they filmed the external view of 47A, which was in Norman Road, Kings Norton in Birmingham; the actual house is still there. Brilliant children's series from an era when it really was the golden age of television.

    Yes, I remember it! I loved it : )It broadcast from 1973-74 (first series) and you can buy a DVD on Amazon. There's info about in Wikipedia. The eldest sister was played by Christine McKenna went on to star in Flambards.
