iNostalgia remembers Liverpool writer Cyril Abraham and his most well-known creation – The Onedin Line

It’s odd to think that one of the best-loved TV drama series of the 1970s owes its success to a pink typewriter that nobody wanted. Liverpool bus-driver Cyril Abraham used the unloved machine to type out his first short stories after his wife Joan rented it for him....
