    Hi all,

    I am hoping you can help. Hubby and I have just spent ages on the web trying to find the name of a TV programme he remembers from childhood (1980's).
    The theme tune was 'I need a hero', Bonnie Tyler and it was about a bloke who rode a motorbike, he thinks it was on on friday nights, and he also thinks it was american. Apparently the actor died whilst making the programme and so it wasn't a very long running show!!
    Does anyone know what he is talking about???

    After a bit more web searching he is sure it was a programme called 'Cover Up', which turns out to be nothing to do with motorbikes but one of the lead characters, who ironically played a weapons specialist, killed himself by accident on set with a gun holding blanks!!

    Just asked OH and he said 'cover up' straight away, then proceeded to tell me about the entire series - through one ear and straight out of the other. The bloke died whilst playing Russian Roulette. Isn't it amazing how blokes can remember all these things :?

    Oh yeah! I remember this. Me and my Mum used to sit and watch it together on Friday nights while my Dad and brother went out. Loved it! Big crispy eighties hair!
