Can anyone, of a certain age, remember two television public information notices from the late sixties / early seventies, that were used to demonstrate to drivers, how to use passing places in the Scottish Highlands.They were loosely based on the Beverley Hillbillies. Four people drove around in an open backed wagon similar to the Clampetts' showing how passing places should be used. They adapted the same theme music, but substituted the words with phrases relating to traffic and driving.The locations that were used were Torridon, Kinlochewe and alongside Loch Maree, and at that time most of the area consisted of single track roads.For their day the adverts were clever and amusing. I would like to find out as much additional information as possible such as were they BBC or ITV productions, when were they first aired, who were the singers in the wagon, who directed the adverts and are they available to view on something like Youtube (I have tried but they may be hidden under some obscure title) or indeed anywhere else. Go visit someday's a beautiful place !
