King of the River (BBC-1 1966-1967, Bernard Lee, Richard James)

Published

on

Drama series King of the River was about Joss King, skipper of a sailing barge, who is determined that his growing son won’t follow in his footsteps.

Original Radio Times publicity… King Of The River – Meet The Main Characters – Introduced By Their Author Colin Morris: This series is about the King family who love, live, fight, and work around a harbour in the Thames estuary. They inhabit a roaring outspoken community which feels itself vastly superior to nine-to-five office squatters. The chief character is Joss King (Bernard Lee), last skipper of a barge trading under sail. To the rest of Salthaven his ship belongs to the Greenwich Nautical Museum. His wife died six years ago, and when he speaks of her his voice breaks.

His recreation ashore is the pub, where his tough, warm-hearted friend Nel (Sandra Dorne) calls time with a belaying pin. His elder daughter is Ruth (Meg Wynn Owen), a modern-language teacher at the local grammar school. Ruth loathes the sea; it has brought tragedy to the family and she strives to wean from it her young brother Saul (Richard James), an arch-investigator of cargoes carried in other ships. Susanna, the other daughter (Geraldine Sherman), is eighteen, and has just left school. She has three A-levels, but doesn’t know what to do with them. Various admirers with sports cars come and go, not having enough courage to handle her. If she had her way she would like to go fishing with her Uncle Ben (Robert Brown). There is no single mood in the stories, except that they take you out of doors. If you can watch them all, you will see the characters and develop, as in a novel. (Radio Times, June 30, 1966).
