“ITV National Service until Autumn Schedules start on Monday” (announced during the News at 5:45)

 

On – Screen promotion today confirms that an episode was shown at 6:35 and Noele Gordon welcomed viewers back to ITV with the following introduction…

 

Hello, and welcome back!

 

No doubt you’ve been wondering what’s been going on at the motel during the last few weeks…

Well let me remind you of what was happening when you were last here.

 

First there was Alison Cotterill – the  young girl with the scar. She lives with her Uncle Reg, who won’t allow mirrors in the house because he believes they pander to human vanity. And of course, Benny has bought her a powder compact – with a mirror.

 

Then there’s Richard Lord, who some time ago was dismissed from his job as a school teacher because he had a love affair with one of his pupils, a young girl. David Hunter was instrumental in getting him dismissed, and while David was away on holiday, Lord reappeared in the area and I gave him a part-time job looking after the accounts.

 

Then of course, there’s Jill, who’s been seeing her lawyer about the divorce proceedings, which will decide on the custody of Sarah Jane, and of course also decide on the property…

 

Well I think that just about brings us up to date. Gosh – look at the time. Must go! I’ll see you soon…

 

Goodbye!

 

TV Times Granada and Yorkshire for 13-08-79 – The original scheduled date of this episode…

Florence Baker discloses more than she should to Freya Offermans. Reg Cotterill is enraged when he finds out about Benny’s present.
