Benign 60's British drama/comedy based on the movie Alfie
Story of a young cockney lad struggling to make it in mid-60's Britain. Heavily influenced (maybe too heavily) by Michael Caine's character, Alfie. Shown over the summer of 1967, and later in the evening because of some (then) risqué content, it only lasted 14 weeks. A victim of the BBC's early videotape debacle, being erased along with many other early-mid 60's TV shows in order to save a buck on reusable media!
Produced by John Frankau it included some famous guest stars of the day - Liz Fraser, Charles Tingwell, Nigel Davenport, Jack Watling, Imogen Hassell, Clive Dunn, Ray Brooks, Judy Geeson, John Scott-Martin, Jennie Linden, Georgina Hale, Ronald Radd, Jack Woolgar, John Junkin, Isla Blair, Glyn Houston, Dudley Foster, Nosher Powell, Patsy Ann Noble, Anna Carteret, George Pravda, Denise Coffey, Desmond Llewellyn, Judy Cornwell, and Johnny Briggs.
