Episodes Bergerac: Fall of a Birdman (BBC-1 13 Feb 1983, with Philip Stone) Published 2 years ago on May 8, 2017 In Fall of a Birdman Charlie Hungerford has arranged for the filming of a commercial to launch his new range of wine. It involves a hang glider flying over the island to deliver a bottle of his new range to a model on a yacht (typical Charlie shenanigans in fact). However the hang glider disappears out of view during filming of a key shot and is then found dead on the other side of the island. It quickly becomes apparent that the flyer’s death was no accident. When charter pilot Kendrick tells Jim that he saw a man on the cliffs where the flyer was found, the trail leads to a murky world where birds of prey are a valuable commodity. Local climber and major gambler Jean-Pierre, badly in need of money, has taken a job to steal a protected peregrine falcon and it’s chicks for collector Verrian. Jim and expert mountain climber Jean-Pierre look for clues. Yet again there is a first rate roster of guest stars popping up including Richard Griffiths, the excellent Philip Stone (probably best known for his regular role on the 1970’s series Justice) as the falcon obsessed Verrian, Donald Sumpter as film director Roscoe and Dave Hill as Kendrick the pilot. There is also a small role for the excellent Pauline Delaney as Jean-Pierre’s landlady (for many years she was a semi-regular on the series Public Eye). An excellent episode although there are a couple of dodgy moments, one where Jim and Marianne take a glimpse through binoculars of the peregrine falcon at the the heart of the story which leads to a cut in of some stock wildlifee footage and two when Jean-Pierre tumbles off the cliff at the end it is clearly a penny-for-the-guy style model. Still Jim does look cool in those sunnies! classic quote “You know I made two war pictures, corpses littered everywhere. But they were alive of course.” Marianne is spending rather a lot of time at Jim’s. production details UK / BBC One / 1×55 minute episode / Broadcast Sunday 13 February 1983 at 9.10pm Writer: Paul Wheeler / Production Design: Phil Roberson / Director: Ben Bolt Series: Bergerac Season 2 Episode 6 cast John Nettles as Jim Bergerac Terence Alexander as Charles Hungerford Sean Arnold as Crozier Annette Badland as Charlotte Mela White as Diamante Lil Celia Imrie as Marianne Richard Griffiths as Jean-Pierre Philip Stone as Verrian Donald Sumpter as Roscoe Jonathan Adams as Dr Lejeune Heather Canning as Anne Verrian Dave Hill as Kendrick Ann Coombs as Maria Tom Mennard as Challis Pauline Delaney as Landlady Brian Grellis as Port Officer Laurie Montgomery as Cameraman Betty Henwood as Newscaster Neville Phillips as Forensic man Ann Blyden as Model Mary Paul Jacobs as First policeman Chris Woodward as Second policeman BBCBen BoltBergeracDave HillDonald SumpterHeather CanningPaul WheelerPauline DelanyPhilip StoneRichard GriffithsTV Advertisement advertisement and this just in Episodes2 hours ago Victorian Sensations: Seeing and Believing Series Final Wed 5 Jun on BBC Four In the final episode of this series, psychotherapist Philippa Perry explores how the late Victorian passion for science co-existed with...
