The Onedin Line: Other Points of the Compass (29 Oct 1971)

Published

on

In Other Points of the Compass James and the Charlotte Rhodes are docked but they can’t unload the cargo of Braganza’s wine without paying 12 and a half sovereigns harbour dues – unfortunately Anne and James can only manage 1 and a half between them. Once again though it is Anne who comes up with the plan to raise the money, even if it does mean hocking the family jewelry.

Meanwhile Daniel Fogarty (currently working for Callon as first mate but keen to get his own ship) is keen to get home and back to Elizabeth as quick as possible but the men on his ship are causing problems – he proposes a competition (involving drinking paraffin!) to get them back into line. He also has competition for Elizabeth from the cocksure Albert Frazer who visits Robert Onedin on the pretext of telling Elizabeth he wants her. When Callon discovers Fogarty has hopes of marrying Elizabeth he spots a chance to get one over on James. He is already causing him trouble by flooding the dock with empty casks for James to take back to Braganza knowing that James can’t afford storage facilities at the moment.

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.
