Nature's Fury

Nature's Fury logoMother Nature is more powerful than any man-made bomb and is more ferocious and destructive than any army. Film-maker and adventurer Chris Terrill is fascinated by extreme situations and in this brand-new series for ITV1 he confronts nature head-on, going right to the core of the world’s greatest storms to explore unique human experiences of severe weather. Without a crew, Chris goes alone, with just his camera, into life-threatening situations, confronting high-speed tornados, ferocious hurricanes and deadly firestorms. And he meets the people who live and work in the path of these killer natural forces. Chris says: “I suppose if I’m honest I’d have to admit that I am a bit of an adrenaline junkie, there are those that think I’ve got a death wish, but I haven’t, I’m as t...

Never the Twain

Never the Twain logoWelcome to the Never the Twain guide at TV Tome. Simon Peel and Oliver Smallbridge contest a bitter rivalry in all that they do. Not only are they next-door neighbours, they are also rivals in the antiques market (formerly business partners, they are now pursuing trade individually). Typifying his character, Peel believes that he deals in the best end of the business, Smallbridge the tatty end. Like all people in sitcoms who cannot stand the sight of each other, this loathing is manifested in the form of wisecracks rather than undiluted vitriol. Common sense would dictate that the men go their separate ways and never again darken each other's doorstep; a sitcom, however, requires them to remain together and maintain the festering relationship. In the early days of Never The Twain, up to se...

New Scotland Yard

New Scotland Yard logoThis police drama series from LWT showcased the activities of two officers from the Criminal Investigations Department in Metropolitan police force headquarters at New Scotland Yard, as they dealt with the assorted villains of the day. Starring John Woodvine as Det. Chief Supt. Kingdom and John Carlisle as Det. Sgt. Ward, it ran for three series in 1972/73, but failed to match the ratings of its more glamorous midweek sister, Special Branch. The programme was resurrected for a fourth series in 1974, with an all-new cast.

No Job for a Lady

No Job for a Lady logoComedy icon Penelope Keith stars as Jean Price, a newly elected Labour MP who finds her cherished principles severely tested in the unforgiving, often murky world of Westminster. Jean’s ambition withstands the dreadful facilities and uncivilised hours that might drive a lesser woman out of the job, with the wife and mother managing to hold her own amid the swollen egos, rampant chauvinism and Machiavellian scheming of the political elite; husband Geoff provides much-needed moral support. Also featuring Ruth Rendell Mysteries star George Baker as Tory adversary Sir Godfrey Eagan and Garfield Morgan as Labour whip Norman, this cleverly scripted Thames comedy was directed by BAFTA Award winner John Howard Davies, whose high-profile credits include The Good Life, Fawlty Towers and Mr B...
