BBC Television Drama from 1955 and ‘The Blue Peter’ film – same year

Well, there was really no alternative viewing in those days – but I have to say that the programme content was generally very good. Typical of the plays we used to get are the ones below :-

ABOVE – ”The River Line’ which was broadcast in May of 1955 with Charles Norgan, Rosalie Crutchley, James Donald and John Charlesworth (Seated)

I well remember John Charlesworth from Billy Bunter and the wonderful film ‘The Blue Peter’ which he must have filmed straight after this play. Very sadly he took his own life about a decade later

‘The Blue Peter’ was a Widescreen Colour film that I saw at the Cinema years ago. The outdoor scenes in Wales – in and around Aberdovey were quite breathtaking on the big screen – particularly the climax on the cliff- I thought that was brilliantly done. sadly it does not have the same impact on the Television screen

Wales never looked better than in this film

ABOVE – ‘Candida’ with Michael Hordern, Irene Worth and Tom Criddle

ABOVE ‘ For Dear Life’ with Malcolm Keen, Patricia Burke, Anthony Oliver (seated) and Hamilton Dyce

The above are good quality Television plays from 1955 with top actors
