a dedicated to Tugs a Children's Television series that was set in the fictional harbour; Bigg City Port during
the 1920s. It followed the highs and lows of the Star Fleet, frequently focusing on their Number 1 Tug Ten Cents. It
all begins when Sunshine is brought in to help the Star Tugs with the extra work in the days when the Star Fleet were getting

In many parts of the site
I have used quotes from the series and links to content outside the site so to make the best use of the limited
amount of web space available. Below is are two video clips; the first one made by Tachyon TV's Space Time Visualiser
team. The second is a video of the opening titles, both videos are hosted by YouTube.
The aims of this website are;
1) To keep the memory of Tugs alive by working in partnership with the Star
Tugs Trust; (www.thestartugs.co.uk) and its affiliated sites.
2) To provide a hub
and database enabling people to find out more about Tugs without giving away too many spoilers.
3) To show that there is still an appetite for Tugs and promote the Tugs DVD Campaign.

A Memorable Quote...
"Bigg City port never ceased
working, operations carried out throughout the night were continued in the early mornings. Goods stacked high along the docksides were brought
into port by road and by rail the lorries and wagons were then re loaded with cargo coming from incoming tramp steamers, ferries
and liners for delivery to inland cities and towns. Everyone and every method of transport played a part in moving goods
into and outfox the port. The work of our Tugs was an important link in the chain it was non-stop and round the clock. The
lifeblood of the operation was coal. Without this dirty stuff industry would have ground to a halt..."
