Gazette: Arrival (ITV 2 Aug 1968, with Norman Claridge)

Published

on

In Arrival 39 year old James Hadleigh resigns from his ministerial job to return to his Yorkshire home following the death of his father.

The staff of the newspaper, The Westdale Gazette, that he now owns are none too pleased to discover the news first being revealed in a rival paper. They are also rather concerned about how hands on he intends to be with the newspaper. Meanwhile the staff of the country estate he has inherited are also somewhat concerned about their future.

Editor Frank Walters is determined to run a big story about Hadleigh’s return despite the fact that Hadleigh is putting pressure on him to not do so. When Frank runs a front page article he is summoned to Hadleigh’s estate where Hadleigh makes it plain he wants Walters gone. Walters though has a cast iron contract that gives him three years worth of severance pay – a sum that Hadleigh just can’t afford to pay out at this point in time.

A good solid introductory episode, there is plenty of nice banter between editor Walters and his key reporters Sue Jackson and Bill Spence. It also sets up the dynamic between Hadleigh and his editor Walters. It’s clear that despite Hadleigh’s intentions to not get involved in the running of the newspaper – he will.

Googie Withers Within These Walls

In Prison Cat, pregnant Poppy Hall is distraught when her boyfriend breaks it off. Prison officer Worth decides to try and get him to change his mind but instead becomes romantically involved with him.

Meanwhile Amaryllis Royal, who is also having a baby, threatens to sue Stone Park because she has to have her baby in prison.

Poppy gives birth and because she thinks her boyfriend Ted will take her back if she doesn’t have the baby. She kills the infant and blames it on the prison cat. At the baby’s funeral Poppy escapes and discovers Ted with Officer Worth. Ted makes it clear to both of them that all he wants is some fun. Worth persuades Poppy to return to prison but she herself has had enough.

This was the second script for the series by Kathleen J. Smith, she was a former Assistant Governor at Holloway. According the Kathleen the story “was not based on fact, but the characters are, and so are the stresses that face them. You could say the story is based on possibilities.”
