The Brothers: Home And Away (BBC1 15 Sep 1976, Hilary Tindall)

The Brothers

In Home and Away April’s brother Simon has been confirmed as Chairman of the bank and Sir Neville has sadly passed away. Merroney, Jane and Brian are in Amsterdam to try and persuade Van Der Merwe to agree to buy two new aeroplanes which would also greatly expand the airfield operations and Ted has embarked on a three week course to learn more about the modern world of management as well as gain an insight into his own life. Meanwhile Brian’s daughter Carol has asked to see Mary and himself, she is now fifteen and questioning a few things about her life. The biggest bombshell though is the return of Brian’s wife Anne!

On another note Gwen and Bill are gazumped over the price of the house they desperately wanted leaving Gwen severely depressed.

Wow, definitely a surprise to see Anne return and within the space of five minutes is already shaking things up for Brian, Carol this time out is played by Debbie Farrington and once again in the world of The Brothers she is older by a long way than she should be based on her last appearance.
