The Siege of Golden Hill: The Frighteners (ITV 6 Jul 1975, with Walter Dalby)



Siege of Golden Hill Threats

In The Frighteners Sarah’s dad wants to make one last ditch effort to talk Billy into persuading his granddad to give up his home. But Billy and Old Tom are determined to stay strong. Meanwhile Franks wants the Anvil gang to put even more pressure on the old man. Kenny is not so sure he wants to be involved anymore. He seeks out Billy at the youth club (who is not there) but Sarah and Des persuade him to help with a plan they are working on.

The menacing Franks has his hands full somewhat here putting the hard word on Sara’s dad as well as ramping up the threats to the Old Man and Billy.
