as a newzeland fromer marching member, marching can be tough especially when some teams are competitive keeping in time to the music was hard enough and getting screamed at by my coach was another so its no wonder why i went on and off wtih it.

As an Australian Marching girl who started in 1973 and still has daughters marching I would love to see the rest of this - and why not film a modern day version...Marching was so much fun back then...really want to know if they won

I don't know what's more rare - seeing a large female cast on the telly, or seeing the Hutt on the telly!

Hugely enjoyable. I really hope the rest of the series is put online. How else will we find out whether those Taita underdogs won the North Island Champs with their unconventional moves?

I think it's time NZ On SCreen started loading whole series. Can't see this ever being a big earner on DVD but after seeing a clip of it on Prime's 50 Years show the other night I would so love to see the whole thing.

Back in 87, I never missed an episode...much to the amusement of all my friends. Marching Girls didn't play too well with with the university crowd!
I however loved it and was gutted there wasn't a second series. Memorable characters, great plot lines and above all 10 female characters who did more than just lick their lips and pout.

And for those of you who weren't there...yes unfortunately the 80's DID indeed look like that. I will shamefacedly hold my hand up and admit to owning a pair of maroon 3 stripe Adidas trackie pants (with the heel strap) just like the ones worn here.

What were we thinking?

does anyone know how to get a hold of the whole series??

I have this series on video. My mum taped it for me when it screened. Brings back some funny memories. My first time at a marching competiton was in 1986 and my photos show this uniform belonged to an exisiting team!

I loved this show when it aired. I was 14 and a marching girl. At the time it was awesome to see the sport being recognised.

Yes, I have seen Gloss - it's great and seriously classy :-)

I can't believe we looked like that in the 80s. Speaking of the 80s: The Leading Edge is my favourite 80s title on this site. What do you think?

Have you tried watching gloss? Started the same year! But 'classier' people. I would say it was worse than this! I loved watching this - can't wait for more!

I'm in full NZ integration mode trying to watch this valuable piece of culture. But I can't ... this is just too much :-)

Were the 80s really like this?
