Man At The Top: It’s All Perfectly True (ITV 21 Dec 1970)

Published

on

In It’s All Perfectly True Susan is getting over a miscarriage which prompts a visit from the in-laws. Susan is concerned to discover that her father has been interfering in Joe’s business by using his contacts to make sure he gets preferential treatment. Joe’s latest contract means he need to spend a lot of time with the company’s managing director, who just happens to be a single woman and very attractive.

A good strong episode for Zena Walker with Joe more on the sidelines, Haigh does a fabulous job at looking like he has had slightly too much to drink. The best scene is an argument between Susan and Joe in the middle of the night (Joe has just returned home from a night out) when Susan spills the beans about her father recommending him to Gilberts. Good to see a rare straight guest role for the fab Hugh Paddick too.

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.
