Bright’s Boffins: The Balloon (S1EP6 ITV Mon 7 Feb 1972, Bartlett Mullins)



In The Balloon Bright’s new atomic gas filled balloon is a little too good – causing him no small amount of drama.

Bartlett Mullins, who plays the professor, had a very long film and TV career, making his TV debut in 1947 in a version of The Man Who Came To Dinner. Bright’s Boffins (along with The Likely Lads where he played Mr Clough) was one of the few series where he had a recurring role.
