The Main Chance: One For The House (ITV 23 Aug 1972)

Published

on

In One For The House David agrees to help Warren Iveson launch a take-over bid on the brewery owned by his father-in-law but a stop at nothing businessman, Neville Carson, also wants the brewery. Main wants a massive £30,000 if the bid is successful – just the amount he needs to put towards the mortgage on the new £70,000 house Hilary wants them to buy. Things get a little murky when David puts £15,000 of his own money on the line too.

Interestingly Warren is the chap who was cited in Sarah’s divorce from Lord Radchester and she is very quick to jump back into bed with him again.

Anna Palk featured in the TV Times for this week’s episode saying how playing Lady Radchester, rather than just David’s secretary offered her more fun. She said of the sailing footage “swanning again, two hours to film the scene and four to bring the boat back. Sailing against the wind is slow. But it made a lovely day.” The whole scene lasted only a couple of minutes and mostly served as an opportunity to get the lovely Anna Palk in a bikini.

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.
