    Channel 4 (ended 1993)
    The winner of the Royal Television Society award for Best Youth Programme, Teenage Health freak was an adaption of Aidan Macfarlane and Ann McPherson's novel "The Diary of a Teenage Health Freak". Shown on Britain's Channel 4 in the early 90s, this teenage comedy-drama ran for 12 half-hour episodes over 2 seasons. The Health Freak in question is one Peter Payne (Alex Langdon) and we follow his attempts to cope with his parents (Tilly Vosburgh and series writer Daniel Peacock) and school-life, dominated by his lust for beautiful classmate Amanda Jeffs (Liza Walker). Things were not plain sailing though, as Amanda hardly knew he was alive and clueless headmaster (Tony Robinson) didn't help matters. To blow off steam, Peter used a video camera to record his life. Although still fondly remembered by many, to date this much under-rated series has never been released on DVD.moreless
