Dir: Peter Medak
Starring: Alan Bates and Janet Suzman
A couple use black humour to disguise their pain as they care for their disabled child
This astonishingly hard-hitting drama makes for uncomfortable viewing and is not for the faint-hearted. Based on the Peter Nichols play of the same name it is, none the less, easy to admire for its realism. There is a scene at the end that is filmed at Bristol Temple Meads station with an express arriving behind ‘Peak’ Class 45 diesel No. D125.
