Dir: John Mackenzie
Starring: Carol White and Roy Harper
A young and tragic single mother has an affair with an oddball rock star
This dreadfully depressing drama is based on the novel No One Was Saved by Howard Barker. The film features a railway journey supposedly heading to Brighton and although there is a scene filmed outside Brighton station, the railway journey itself was filmed on the Western Region with a rake of Mk.1 coaches. Although the locomotive powering the train is not seen there is a brief glimpse of a Class 52 ‘Western’ diesel-hydraulic heading past with an express in the opposite direction. The station that the train passes through is thought to be Ascott-under-Wychwood on the Cotswold Line.
