The Power Game: Ambassador Status (ITV 3 Oct 1966, with Patrick Allen)

Published

on


In Ambassador Status Caswell has taken over chairmanship of the National Export Board (he doesn’t know that the board is going to be disbanded sooner rather than later though), Wilder and Kenneth are at loggerheads somewhat over both the European and African projects.

Meanwhile Susan is rather taken with new NEB member David Main, and Wilder is more than a little disturbed when he discovers she has been going out to dinner with him.

Interestingly Patrick Allen plays a character called David Main. Although Edmund Ward didn’t write this episode he was heavily involved with the series as a whole. He would go on to create the superb series The Main Chance about solicitor David Main.
