Love Story: Conversations in the Dark (S1EP3 ITV Tues 16 Jan 1973)



Conversations in the Dark is a story of learning the art of compromise for a young couple. Jenny is keen to get married, her boyfriend Bob not so much.

A somewhat slight story from William Corlett and outside of Vickery Turner there were not too many well known names in the cast, John Nolan though would go to major TV stardom a short few months later thanks to a starring role in Granada’s Shabby Tiger which was one of the TV drama hits of the year.
