The Brothers: Blood and Water (BBC1 21 Mar 1976, Robin Chadwick)

Published

on

In Blood and Water there are some tough decisions to be made for the board of Hammond Transport when rival company Kirkmans offers to buy all the shares of the board members. Brian and Ted are clear that they must reject the offer, the rest of the board are not so convinced. Jane Maxwell is also convinced Merroney is acting as a go-between for Kirkmans but it soon becomes clear (to Bill Riley at least) that he is very anti Kirkmans.

One of the real plus points this season has been the revitalisation of Brian. Since returning from his exile in the mental institution he has developed quite the philosophical turn of phrase. It is also made plain yet again that Merroney actually cares a great deal about Hammonds and intends to make sure of its continued success. It’s just that the other members of the board can never seen past his arrogant ways.

Writer of this episode Brian Finch was no stranger to the family saga having been a regular on ITV’s Family At War.

Hazell and the Suffolk Ghost

In Hazell and the Suffolk Ghost our intrepid hero pays a visit to the seaside when an accountant, Peter Harlow, calls him in over a cottage he has been left in a will. He has no idea why he has been left the cottage but since he has taken over ownership more than a few strange things have been happening.

Hazell stays at the cottage for a few days and manages to find no small amount of comfort when Harlow’s wife Stephanie turns up (Harlow himself is in New York). Although there is clearly something spooky going on it’s definitely man made and it doesn’t take Hazell too long to work it out.

The episode was a rare outing outside of London for the series, it was filmed in the East Anglian village of Walberswick and surrounds. Although all the interiors were filmed in studio of coure.
