The Brothers: Saturday (BBC-1 3 Nov 1974)

Published

on

There’s trouble at t’mill in Saturday when the drivers at Hammonds think they deserve a share of the spoils from the upcoming share issue, threatening strike action if they don’t get their own way, Ted though realises that the floatation is not the real issue but more one of the boys getting a pay rise.

Meanwhile Mary persuades Ted and Brian that a day out and picnic would do them both the world of good and will fit in with her plans for a weekend away, she is right and both men have a marvellous time looking back to their childhoods, on the way home Brian picks up a couple of hitch-hikers and, distracted by their chatter, is involved in a car accident which leaves a young girl seriously injured.

So far this season has almost completely belonged to Brian, whether it be business or personal. Quite a surprising ending that you don’t quite see coming too.

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.
