    Richard Atherton and Kenneth Hendel look dismayed when they miss the lift. The previously-sighted Victor Harrington is also lift-less in this scene.

      Nicol Williamson does not look very cheery as he gazes through the smoke-filled environment. Jay McGrath stands on the right wisely near to the door, but it looks like Cy Town in the body of the kirk bottom right

      And as the camera dramatically wanders through the audience, I see here Paul Phillips as well as Jack Armstrong and Alicia St. Leger having a chat.

      The song played at the club seems to be performed by The Spectrum, who are presumably the same popular beat combo who did the title vocals for the CAPTAIN SCARLET AND THE MYSTERONS.

            "The board of directors is nothing but a hoard of bores" is not quite how another Sherlock, Basil Rathbone, blurted out a line on a Holmes radio programme, but this hoard includes along with Nicol, John Hussey, John Normington, Kenneth Hendel, George Belbin and Lewis Alexander.

              Then there's the big nobs' party which Nicol's insensitive wife stages the day after his father has died. Esme Smythe takes centre stage here, with Joan Henley on the right. George Belbin is also here, probably playing the same role as in the board scene. Peter Sallis is down on the IMDb uncredited cast list for the film, but I never spotted him. I wonder if someone thought he is the slightly lookalike piano player here?

              The thing is, Nicol and his chum Tom Kempinski have got pissed down the local and are stirring things up. Looking on are Roy Lansford in the background, Reg Thomason and in the foreground, Sheila Gish and Donald Douglas.

                        But at the Dean's speech, the question is for the assembled smartly-attired first year students (including Barry Evans, Robin Nedwell, Geoffrey Davies and Mike Grady) with among them Cy Town sitting next to George Layton, how quickly will he finish it? Cy's character in an earlier scene gets the name of "Mr. Frampton".
