The Brothers: Happy Anniversary (BBC-1 22 Sep 1974)

Published

on

In Happy Anniversary matters finally come to a head between Brian and Ann although Brian is initially still willing to let Ann’s affair with Nicholas Fox go unmentioned Ann is torn with guilt and decides to make a clean breast of it, she makes it plain that she loves Fox and Brian realises that his marriage is in tatters. Also on the domestic front it’s the wedding anniversary between David and Jill and whilst David buys Jill a nice piece of jewelry Jill goes all out and spends her inheritance buying a flat (in David’s name) in a trendy part of town. David is furious having made it plain to Jill time and again that he will not be her “kept man”.

Back at Hammonds Martin Farrell and Bill Riley are now members of the board of directors, Brian is extremely unhappy about Riley’s place on the board and isn’t shy about letting it be known.

This episode very much belongs to Brian, he is completely obnoxious towards poor old Bill Riley and gets the chance to rant and rave and slam doors during his argument with Ann contrasting with quiet moments when he is trying hard not to show his feelings towards Ann.

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.
