Love Story Once Upon A Time ITV 1972 Clare Sutcliffe and George Sweeney

In Once Upon A Time we are firmly in Romeo and Juliet territory as Terry and Julie (possibly a nod to the Kink’s Waterloo Sunset with the names) are madly in love but their parents are none too impressed. The pair leave love and head to the Worthing coast but still find the rain clouds following them.

George Sweeney who plays Terry is best known for his hard man roles, especially as Speed in sitcom Citizen Smith, also in the cast here is Cheryl Hall who was also a regular in Citizen Smith playing Wolfie’s hard done by girlfriend.

William Moore had a short feature in the weeks TV Times but this was actually about his return to playing Betty Turpin’s husband Cyril in Coronation Street.
