Dir: Muriel Box
Starring: Peter Finch and Kay Kendall

An argumentative couple married for 20 years are given a new lease of life when playing ‘themselves’ in a daily soap opera

This comedy is an adaptation of the 1954 stage comedy of the same name by Alan Melville and satirises the early days of BBC television. It features an early scene filmed at London St Pancras station and although no locos are seen, there are some colour shots of carmine and cream liveried ex-LMS coaches.

Few scenes filmed at St Pancras come without a shot of the station’s unmistakable facade. This, however, will be one of the very first times that it appeared in colour.
