PR: Crown Court - Volume Seven [Network]

Post by Mr_Wolf »

Image

A television institution that lasted for over a decade, Crown Court was a much-loved courtroom drama which, although the cases were fictional, used ‘real’ jurors chosen from members of the public. Multiple endings were prepared for each story, dependent on whether the accused was found guilty or acquitted of the charges, giving each story a strength and energy which raised it far above that of normal courtroom dramas.

This volume contains a further twelve stories in production order, presenting compelling cases covering a wide spectrum of what would come before a courtroom – including murder, child abduction, libel and fraud. Originally transmitted in 1974, the dramas feature appearances by Dinah Sheridan, Richard Wilson, Robert Powell, Don Henderson, Kenneth Cope, Gwen Taylor and Graham Crowden, among many others.

So glad these are still coming. Anyone know which episode this takes us up to?

Also on the cover who is the actor between Tony Selby and John le Mesurier? Looks familiar but I can't place him...

That's Mike Pratt from Randall & Hopkirk (Deceased). He's already been in it, so I suspect this cover is a mock up and not the finished article.

Yes, apart from saying "Volume Seven" where appropriate, it's a straight lift of the cover for Volume 6. I'm sure it'll change in the fullness of time.

I'm guessing, but I imagine the new release will contain these stories:

The Woman Least Likely (20/02/1974 - 22/02/1974)
A Case Of Murder (27/02/1974 - 01/03/1974)
The Assault On Choga Sar (06/03/1974 - 08/03/1974)
Duress (13/03/1974 - 15/03/1974)
30,000 Pieces Of Silver (20/03/1974 - 22/03/1974)
Nuts (27/03/1974 - 29/03/1974)
Confine To Solitary (03/04/1974 - 05/04/1974)
Big Annie (10/04/1974 - 12/04/1974)
Falling Stars (17/04/1974 - 19/04/1974)
Son And Heir (24/04/1974 - 26/04/1974)
Death In The Family (01/05/1974 - 03/05/1974)
Minnie (08/05/1974 - 10/05/1974)

If it does, that'll take it up to episode 250.

Edit: the releases so far have been in production sequence. I was assuming this would be no different, it just happens that the next 12 stories were broadcast in production order.

Minnie is a great story hope that is on there. For some reason Granada Plus showed that first, then went back to the start and ran them in order when they showed them.

I'll more than second the welcome of another Crown Court release!

The series was consistently high quality throughout it's run ... but that set of stories is an excellent one (IMO easily as good a set as any in the first 6 volumes). Good variety of crimes (and civil cases), some very good guest artists - Robert Powell and Colette O'Neil amongst them .. and a particularly moving performance from the late Michael Gwynn in "Nuts".

Lovely stuff!

Excellent news. I'd almost given up hope on any further releases. The recently deceased Frank Thornton and Richard Griffiths also appear in this set of stories.

The six, 65-minute, episodes shown on Saturday evenings in July and August 1975.

Though Granada (at least) repeated a run of the very earlier episodes in an early evening slot the week following their afternoon transmission.

Nice to see the vt clocks on the first three stories of this set.

Currently enjoying The Assault on Choga Sar. One episode a day as per the original broadcast. Check out the vcr technology of 1974 at the start! Also Kenneth Cope's beard.

Is that the late great Frank Thornton sporting a bushy moustache in the lefthand photo of the updated cover?
