Kizzy: What Shall We Do With Kizzy? (BBC-1 28 Jan 1976, with Melissa Docker)

Published

on

In episode two What Shall We Do With Kizzy? the young gypsy girls first day at school is not going very well. Prue Cuthbert is a little horror and very quickly sets out to make Kizzy’s life a misery. A situation made worse by the fact that Kizzy has been given Prue’s clothes as hand-me-downs.

Poor Kizzy, she is truly given a terrible time by the kids at school, only one young boy, Clem Oliver, showing her any kindness. Her situation is made worse by the sudden death of her Gran. The rest of the gypsy group return for Gran’s funeral and begin sorting out her belongings between them, much to Kizzy’s distress. Even worse according to old Gypsy tradition the families burn Gran’s wagon.

Sadly none of the gypsy families seem over keen on taking her in either. Kizzy decides to strike out on her own….

It really couldn’t get any worse for Kizzy at this point. As the episodes ends she is completely on her own.

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.
