Shoestring, the massively BBC series from 1979, starred Trevor Eve (Waking the Dead) as radio ‘Private Ear’ Eddie Shoestring and made him a British household name. Now, for the first time, this set brings both series together in Shoestring: The Complete Series – on DVD from 2nd October. Private detective Shoestring worked at fictitious station Radio West helping out the locals by solving the cases affecting them. ‘Radio West’ was later coined when Radio West launched in 1981, currently now known as Heart Bristol. Created by Robert Banks Stewart (Bergerac) the series starred Micheal Medwin, Liz Crowther and Doran Godwin as well as a host of appearances from British actors Diana Dors, Harry H. Corbett, Christopher Biggins, Toyah Wilcox, Lynda Bellingham and Celia Imrie.
