The Brothers: Red Sky At Night (BBC-1 25 Jan 1976, Francoise Pascal)

Published

on

In season opener Red Sky At Night Brian has been convalescing in Italy and is due back to take up a position at Hammonds once again, Mary is planning a surprise party but Brian gets wind of it and isn’t keen. On the business front Merroney is planning, with the backing of the bank, some massive expansion. Mary is keen to see that Brian gets his seat back on the board (having sold his shares to the bank to finance his convalescance) and goes to see head of the merchant bank Sir Neville who makes it plain that the share issue is irrelevent and all members of the board can only be there on merit and nothing more.

Meanwhile Jennifer is struggling to cope with the idea that William’s birth mother can claim him back before the adoption is fully finalised in a couple of weeks.

Good to see Brian back in the fold and a nice performance from Richard Easton suggesting both vulnerability and a kind of serenity too. It’s clear there are some major league expansion plans going on and David is given the task of testing out the waters in France for the possibility of expanding the airfield operation. He is very much taken with the daughter of the owner of the first airfield he visits, not surprising really as she is played by the sexy Francoise Pascal!

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.
