Comment: Sharlie Mc Gurk (pictured) in weird bibs. Backside simple suspenders (perhaps even selfmade and bib added later). White rope as a belt. Film brother Andreas, 14 ys (Christopher Humburg, son of editor) shown on pic top right on left with their film mother. He wears tight worn jeans.

Probably nobody knows this mini series for learning English (and Britain’s lifestyle and geography). This was my favourite school TV series in the late 80s. Pics showing scenes in Cologne but most scenes are set in Marlborough (UK) where they moved to after their dad’s deadly accident. 4 episodes à 15 minutes.
I have to check all episodes again, but I think only this short scene with bibs.
This series is very rare (no entry at IMDb) and was shown to German pupils on a VCR but also aired on TV (80s and 90s). VHS were only available for teachers and had to be deleteted after the school year. Some copies may still be availabe at libraries or educational institutes. However the complete series is hosted on a teacher’s website (sadly in low resolution).

Perfect series, but for those short bib scenes I can only rate 4. But perhaps someone likes it.
