MINISTRY VERDICT

Coming soon. 

DEATH OF A GREAT DANE DECLASSIFIED

  • Production Brief... The script, along with that for The Removal Men, was drafted by Jeremy Scott, an executive producer at TV Advertising Ltd, whilst on a three month stay in Jamaica in 1961. On his return, he ran them both by his friend Roger Marshall, who agreed to collaborate, and the final scripts of these two episodes were written as a team effort.


  • On Location... Coming soon.


  • Trivia... Coming soon.


  • Bloopers... Coming soon.


  • Stop Press... Coming soon.


  • And Finally... Coming Soon.
