The Brothers: Trade Wind (BBC-1 17 Mar 1974, Jan Harvey)

Published

on

In Trade Wind it is an episode where its all happening on the home front that’s for sure, Mary confronts Julie and gets a little too much information in return, David finally realises that he doesn’t want to lose Jill. Barbara is having great difficult raising the money to pay off husband Johnny’s debts.

A superb heart to heart between Anne and Susan’s teacher Pamela Graham with Anne explaining her lack of ability in the mothering department with some fabulous dialogue makes this episode a real treat.

Check out possibly the worst kissing scene committed to BBC tape though when Anne finally gives in to temptation with the sleazy Nicholas Fox and watch out too for a small role for Jan Harvey as a friend of Julie’s. Harvey would of course go on to play the lead female role of Jan Howard in Gerard Glaister’s 1980’s version of The Brothers – Howard’s Way.

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.
