A child of the 80s would remember this - that super sonic whizzing Scottish Gran! Apparently she was really mean in real life (i have a friend who was an extra in this who couldn't stand her lol).
Granny Smith is a sweet old lady living a sedate life in the Scottish coastal town of Chisleton. Then, one day, she is accidentally struck by a stray beam from Inventor Black's magic ray machine and transformed into 'Supergran' - possessor of amazing powers, superhuman strength, and even a magic 'flycycle'! These she puts to great use in the fight against Chisleton's local villain, The Scunner Campbell, and his nasty cohorts, Dustin and Muscles; though with Supergran's miraculous abilities, defeating the baddies is not usually too much of a challenge!
Gudrun Ure stars as the fearless octogenarian superheroine in this fondly remembered children's series. Alongside regular cast members Iain Cuthbertson and Bill Shine, Supergran also features an array of guest stars including George Best, Lulu, Spike Milligan, Patrick Troughton, Charles Hawtrey and champion strongman Geoff Capes; the show's catchy theme song, performed by Billy Connolly, helped to ensure that it remained firmly in viewers' memories long after its initial transmission. This complete first series of Supergran was originally screened in 1985.
