Dir: Sidney Hayers
Starring: Ian Hendry and June Ritchie

A bored housewife has an affair with her next-door neighbour, only for him to have an affair with her sister

This well-written drama in which everyone is ‘at it’ is based on the 1962 novel of the same name by Nan Maynard. Filmed largely on location in Battersea, a number of shots feature Southern Region and BR slam-door EMU’s passing the streets as part of the everyday scene. There is also a shot of the frontage to West Ruislip Underground station.

This is my street, Havelock Terrace, SW8 to be precise. At the bottom of the street a train can be seen passing on the South Western main line between Vauxhall and Queenstown Road stations.
Facing north-west along Havelock Terrace with a train crossing the viaduct carrying the railway from Wandsworth Road station to Victoria in the background. Battersea Gas Holder Station is beyond.
A train passes the corner of Havelock Terrace and Gladstone Terrace. The cow belongs to a Tonibell Ice Cream van.

This second view facing north-west shows the railway viaduct in closer detail
Grandma reads the morning paper completely oblivious to trains passing by at the bottom of the road. These look like 4 LAV’s.
And now for something a little different. West Ruislip Underground station. Notice it has both BR totems and LUL roundels outside. The Yank car is an Oldsmobile Super 88.
