The Brothers: Public Concern (BBC-1 20 Oct 1974)

Published

on

In Public Concern Merroney and Co have agreed to go ahead with the floatation of Hammonds but there might just be a spanner in the works thanks to a local agitator called Arthur Naylor who wants Hammonds to change the route that their trucks use (mainly because they travel down the road his mum lives on!) but as Ted does his best to calm the situaton down he realises that Naylor’s real motive is to get himself a job with the company.

A really fascinating episode, a big opening out of Hammonds with a glimpse into Riley’s hectic office and the sheer scale of the amount of work that does go on in Hammonds, there is also a real Crossroads soapy feel to the dealings with the petition against the road business with Naylor and the elderly ladies,

Interestingly whenever Carol appears in the show (Brian visits boarding school to tell her the bad news about the divorce) she seems to get younger!

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.
