Re: Morecambe and Wise jumping ship

Well, their ATV series was very popular, but they obviously soared with the BBC, when they left for Thames ( as good as Thames was) they were not up to the BBC's polished production, and a lot of sketches were re-cycled from the BBC shows. The promise of films, turned out to be the TV movie, "Night ...

BTW if you spot Vacant Possession in the TP schedule (they do show it fairly frequently) it is from the AR series Blackmail

A rather amusing bit of fun.

Re: Talking Pictures - more 'No Hiding Place' episodes

The 'End of Part One' caption idea was really clever The use of the End of Part One caption was great. A nice bit of inventive work. I was wondering if they used another studio gallery for those scenes with John Cater. I thought the same thing. It looks a lot to me like the gallery in Studio 1 whic...

Yes, it did break suddenly during that scene, so hopefully the end of it is still there.

"Inquest On An Idol" (24/7/62) is actually on at 8am ( Sunday 11th) odd time.

Re: Talking Pictures - more 'No Hiding Place' episodes

The print of "Death On The Doorstep" was very good. Eric Lander dried at one point and was prompted off screen and Ivor Dean gave a wonderfully camp performance. Nice to see Kevin Stoney and a brief scene with Joy Stewart. For me, "Music For Murder" is the best one of those screened by TPTV, so far,...

Making a quick buck, I guess.

Not sure why they have to be limited editions, when straight box sets would be perfectly acceptable, and a bit cheaper as well ( I'm sure they will be re-released like that eventually).
