Thora on the Straight and Narrow

The Broad and Narrow Way Picture on TV - Influence and Impact 

"Thora on the Straight and Narrow" was aired on the BBC in 1993

The series featured a copy of the Broad and Narrow Way picture. The approximate date of the print must fall within a timescale when motorcars first became popular - As early open top motorcars are depicted in the picture - one can be seen under the "WELCOME" sign and another further up.  (Earlier versions show a Horse Drawn Coach) 

 

Thora on the Straight and Narrow first aired on British TV back in 1993 and is based on the Broad and Narrow Way picture. A friend gave me the complete series from 1993 on video tape - But as far as I know this maybe the only complete set. BBC has no plans of releasing it. I inquired awhile ago and received a reply - "Unfortunately 'Thora on The Straight and Narrow' is not currently available on DVD through BBC Shop and we are unaware of any plans to release this title in the near future."
