Episodes Within These Walls: Labour of Love (ITV 22 Mar 1974, with Pam St Clement) Published 1 year ago on November 20, 2017 The problem of keeping prisoners occupied in a worthwhile way is at the heart of Labour of Love. Most prisoners are involved in work or activities of some kind but some find the going difficult. Linda Silvers, overweight and somewhat slovenly, is picked upon by the other inmates but finds solace in making paperweights with real flowers in them. A new prison visitor, Cecily Foyle, a friend of Faye’s who works in a gift shop and is rather taken with the paper weights, hits upon a new scheme selling the paperweights in her shop. Meanwhile another prison visitor, Mrs Yardley, is causing a few problems because of her forthright views. When she finds out what is going on with the flower paperweights she gets the unions involved. It almost causes a major upset but Faye is able to smooth things over with the visiting “Fancy Goods” union official. Not for the first time Faye reiterates the point that the prisoners are not there for punishment but as punishment, a subtle but all important difference. An interesting episode with quite a few “outside the prison” scenes, especially with visits to Cecily Foyle’s shop. production details UK / ITV – London Weekend Television / 1×50 minute episode / Broadcast Friday 22 March 1974 at 9.00pm Writer: Peter Wildeblood / Production Design: Rodney Cammish / Director: Paul Annett Series: Within These Walls Season 1 Episode 12 cast Googie Withers as Faye Boswell Mona Bruce as Mrs Armitage Jerome Willis as Charles Radley Audrey Muir as Miss Flaxton Toni Palmer as Fran Doremy Vernon as Ella Rosemary Blake as Bette Pam St Clement as Linda Silvers Elizabeth Weaver as Mrs Yardley Diana Van Proosdy as Prison officer Adams Katie Flower as Prison officer Moffitt Muriel Barker as Miss Flowers Jenny Short as Sheila Phyllis McMahon as Rosemary Joan Benham as Cecily Foyle Hazel McBride as Heather John Gregg as Tom Phipps Hazel McBrideITVJoan BenhamLondon Weekend TelevisionPam St ClementPaul AnnettPeter WildebloodToni PalmerTV Advertisement advertisement and this just in Episodes1 day ago Bring It!: Breaking the Curse of the B-Squad (S5EP20 Lifetime Thurs 28 Feb 2019) Breaking the Curse of the B-Squad: Alumni Kayla and Sunjai arrive at the Dollhouse to help the B-Squad break their...
