TV Pictures (ITV 1983 with Peter McEnery and Wendy Morgan) Published 3 years ago on March 14, 2016 UK / ITV – ATV – Central / 7×60 minute episodes / Broadcast 11 February – 25 March 1983 Writer: Roy Clarke / Music: Jim Parker / Producer: Joan Brown / Director: Carol Wiseman “Our first row he tried to run me over with an Austin all weather tourer.” Period drama serial. In the 1920’s a group of people try to mark their way in the burgeoning film world especially screenwriter Bill Trench and wannabe star Ruby Sears. Wonderful glimpse into the silent movie business and with a top notch couple of performances from Peter McEnery and Wendy Morgan (not sure why Morgan didn’t have a more prominent career, she is fabulous here). Roy Clarke’s dialogue is fabulous, full of quick fire repartee. The series is a sort of companion piece to Clarke’s 1980 series Flickers which dealt with the very beginnings of the film industry in the UK. cast Peter McEnery as Bill Trench Wendy Morgan as Ruby Sears Harry Towb as Ziggy Olman Anton Rodgers as Garfield Forbes-Lawson Annette Badland as Vera Malcolm Jamieson as Graham Marc Smith as Harry Lassiter Marianne Borgo as Margot Romark John Carlin as Cockburn back to UK TV Drama Guide Annette BadlandAnton RodgersATVCarol WisemanCentralHarry TowbITVJim ParkerJohn CarlinPeter McEneryRoy ClarkeWendy Morgan Advertisement advertisement and this just in Features24 hours ago Classic Movie Characters: Arnold Schwarzenegger is The Terminator Before The Terminator, Arnold Schwarzenegger was viewed as little more than a B-list barbarian.
