The Brothers: Out of the Blue (BBC-1 28 Nov 1976, Julia Goodman)

Published

on


In Out of the Blue there is a surprise in store for Jenny when her daughter Barbara turns up from Canada unexpectedly. It’s clear there is something going on with her marriage to Johnny but as far as her mother is concerned it’s just a social visit. Meanwhile Merroney has realised he can’t count on the bank to come up with the money for the Tehran project (which needs an injection of half a million pounds from Hammonds – Van Der Merwe’s are putting in the same amount) so he comes up with a scheme to release more shares – the only issue for the Hammonds is (David, Jenny and Ted, who own 45% of the company between them) if they can’t afford to buy up the shares themselves it would dilute their own holdings.

More scheming by Merroney and the return of Julia Goodman as a now very grown up Barbara are the highlights of the episode, there is also a little plot development which involves the police and a possible case of human traffiking in Holland and the possible involvement of Hammond drivers, Bill has agreed to spend a week in Holland under cover to see what he can find out.
