Holding On (ITV 1977 with Michael Elphick & John Nettles)

Drama Bangelstein’s Boys follows a rugby team’s annual tour that looks like descending into chaos when three of the players have a falling out; Tommy and Jack are more than a little put out when they discover their brother-in-law Dave has a mistress.

This was Colin Welland’s debut as a TV writer (broadcast under the Saturday Night Theatre Banner and touches on many of the themes that he would continue with for the rest of his career. Incidentally, Welland, a real Rugby enthusiast, co-created a game called Matchbox Rugby.

Adrienne Frame, who had a minor role as Pete’s girl, is better known as writer Adrienne Conway.
