Bob Jacobs was the 1st Assistant Director on Trinity Tales. The Pebble Mill series, which went out in 1975, was written by Alan Plater as a contemporary take on Chaucer’s ‘Canterbury Tales’. It follows the stories of a group of fans on their way to the Rugby Cup Final at Wembley. As in the ‘Canterbury Tales’ they swap stories along the way.
David Rose was the Producer and Michael Simpson and Tristan de Vere Cole the Directors. It starred: Bill Maynard (Stan the fryer); Francis Matthews (Eric the prologue); Colin Farrell (Nick the driver); Gaye Brown (the wife of Batley Alice); John Stratton (the man of Law Smith); Susan Littler (Judy the Judy); Paul Copley (Dave the joiner); Peter Benson (Reuben)
