A schoolmistress in Yorkshire exposes crooked councillors
This drama is based on the novel of the same name by Winifred Holtby, who tragically died one month after its publication in 1935 at the age of just 37. A horse-riding scene was shot in the grounds of Denham Studios, and eagle-eyed viewers will see a very brief glimpse of one of the tenders of the ex-LNER J15 Class 0-6-0’s owned by the studio which had been used for the production Knight Without Armour (qv) the previous year. No doubt this was not meant to appear in shot at all. There is also a stock shot of a GWR ‘King’ Class 4-6-0 on an express.
