Kids from Degrassi Street, The/Degrassi Junior High

CANADIAN SOAPERY that became a regular Children’s BBC post-school distraction. First incarnation found the eponymous small urban east-coast location peopled with kids making their way through life in familiar harsh realities of crazy, scary modern day world with moral lessons well to the fore, usually involving a disabled weakling/ethnic minority/brainaic being picked upon then “coming through” at some pertinent plot point. Graduated into DEGRASSI JUNIOR HIGH (“Wake up in the morning/Feeling sad and lonely/Gee, I gotta go to school!”) and the post-NEWSROUND slot thanks to more teenage concerns (“She’s so flat the walls are jealous!”).
