Starring: Carol White and Terence Stamp

A young mother in London struggles in her marriage to a convicted criminal

This drama is based on Nell Dunn’s 1967 novel of the same name and much of the film was shot on location in the areas around Battersea, Clapham and Wandsworth. There are several scenes that feature BR blue-liveried suburban EMU’s, and though most make quite indistinct background appearances, there is one shot that features a semi-distant view of EMU’s crossing over Plough Road in Battersea.

This is the clearest railway shot in the film. Carol White is in the foreground with the chimneys of Fulham Power Station in the background. Crossing Plough Road between the two is a BR suburban electric unit running between Wandsworth Town and Clapham Junction stations.
