The Onedin Line: Winner Take All (BBC-1 28 Jan 1972)

Published

on

In Winner Take All, the final episode of the first season, Albert Frazer finally persuades James of the benefits of steam but to build the two new ships they want and raise the £100,000 they need they will have to go public. Naturally enough the wily Callon spots an opportunity to get himself a controlling interest in the steamship enterprise. Not only that but thanks to his canny playing ends up chairman of the company.

Meanwhile Baines has passed his Master’s examination and has been given command of the Pampero. His first voyage in command sees the ship in serious trouble though when it runs into a bad storm. Disastrously Baines has to give the order to abandon ship as the Pampero goes down.

James Garbutt makes an appearance here as Mr Tapscott who is organising the floatation, he would go on to take the role of Robert Onedin in the third series.

A strong end to what has been a fabulous opening season. By the end of the episode James and Anne are pretty much back where they started. He has lost control of the steam ship project and the Pampero has gone – but at least he still has the Charlotte Rhodes and Anne.

The Onedin Line Winner Take All

Baines gets command of his first ship only for disaster to strike.

Hazell Gets The Boot

In Hazell Gets The Boot Hazell finds himself more or less coerced into taking on a supposedly simple job for villain Dave Castle. His Bently has been stolen and he wants James to get it back for him. Hazell’s investigation leads him to a scrap yard where the car is being hidden. He gets more than he bargained for when two of the Connell gang ambush him and give him a thorough going over.

Meanwhile Hazell’s love life is also going through a troublesome patch. Patsy Flanagan is spending some time at his flat after having a dust up with her husband. Hazell is keen for the arrangement to be just a night or two of pleasure but Patsy is keen on a more permanent arrangement.
