Man At The Top: The Knacker’s Yard (ITV 19 June 1972)

Published

on

In The Knacker’s Yard Joe finds himself caught between a real rock and a hard place when MacLaine’s tells him that he has to let an old friend go, Arnold Clayton has been running a factory back up north but MacLaine thinks it isn’t profitable enough and wants to sell it off, Joe is determined to at least save the jobs of the thousand men employed there and realises that Susan’s new boss Mike Slater may hold the key to saving the day.

It’s really good to see Joe getting a taste of his own medicine with Susan laying down the law about whether she will see Slater socially or not, she is even planning to spend a weekend with at a country house weekend. Joe actually comes across in a real Brutish fashion during a confrontation in the pub with Susan, he has bad news to break to her and is less than pleased that he has to go in search of her. Stephanie Beacham makes a sultry guest appearance here and is all cleavage and northern accent. She very quickly makes a bee line for Joe.

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.
