| The Huggetts on Safari
The title of the last gasp of the Huggett series (Gainsborough Pictures itself soon followed later the same year) lead me to expect comic frolics abroad like 'Carry On Abroad', but it turns out to be a fairly rugged adventure film, albeit constructed around the Huggett family, with actual desert footage directed by editor Alan Osbiston surprisingly effectively integrated with studio-shot scenes of the Huggetts themselves. (Did emigrants to South Africa really get there in the late forties by trekking across the Sahara?)

Esma Cannon, who was murdered in the original 'Holiday Camp', surprisingly pops up briefly in a completely different role in this film as Petula Clark's scoutmistress.
