An office clerk recreates the Old Bailey in his house and puts his son on trial
This rather absurd surrealist comedy is an adaptation of the play by N. F. Simpson. There is a scene where Jonathan Miller studies a ‘speak your weight’ machine on the Metropolitan Line platforms of Baker Street Underground station with good shots of A60 stock working Metropolitan Line services (two vehicles are No’s.6134 and 6135). The story centres upon him stealing the ‘speak your weight’ machines and successfully teaching them to sing!
