RAY BARRETT GEOFFREY KEEN
PHILIP LATHAM in A Very Special Relationship by Roy RUSSELL
Guest star,
Peter Copley
Cast in order of appearance:
Series created by JOHN ELLIOT
Designer, John Hurst
Produced by ANTHONY READ
Directed'by HENRI SAFRAN
Willy Izard (Philip Latham ) has the leading part in this episode, which is based on a case of fraud which author Roy Russell himself came across when he was working in business.
For once, Izard is seen away from Mogul House, visiting Paris and Malta, where he filmed with Ray Barrett on board a genuine millionaire's yacht in the harbour. The launch which they use was a last-minute replacement-the one which was booked blew up the night before filming, in the open Mediterranean. The owner and his family were rescued by a passing yacht, but the boat sank in flames.
Tonight, Stead's plans for expansion in Europe as part of his fight against Zenith take a knock when a French multi-millionaire-played by guest star Guy Rolfe -marries a film starlet.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
