Written by Richard Wade.
Starring Dudley Foster as Edward Hastings, Maggie Jones as Florence Hastings

Humphrey passed away in 1898 and his son, Edward, is now head of the Hastings family. The whole family, including the son (another Humphrey), have a problem. The day of the horse is dead, but what replaces it? Steam, electricity, or the internal combustion engine; the choice was wide in 1904 - which would you choose? The second-hand car dealer in Great Portland Street was of no more help to them then than he is now, but a practical father is never defeated - at least not often!
