The still is from a 1973 Second City First studio drama, called ‘The Great Acrobile’, transmitted on 1st March.  It was directed by Tristan de Vere Cole, produced by David Rose, written by Roy Minton, with Barry Hanson as the script editor, and Michael Edwards as the production designer.

The drama was recorded in Studio A.  It starred Bernard Spear as Mawson, Brian Godfrey as Bernard, John Garry as Sproggs, Ian Gammell as Ticky, Ben Tabiner as Mick, and Ralph Arliss as Slim.

Unfortunately it seems that ‘The Great Acrobile’ was recorded over, and that no copy now exists.  This was the case with many studio dramas from the 1970s.

Thanks to Mike Bloore for identifying the drama.
