This is the rehearsal script front page for series 2, episode 4 of the 1981 drama series: Nanny. The series starred Wendy Craig as the nanny. The producer of the drama was Guy Slater and the director, David Tucker.
You’ll notice that the crew would be filming the winter sequences of this script on New Year’s Eve 1981 – that’s dedication!
Thanks to film editor, Oliver White, for keeping the script safe all these years.
The following comments were left on the Pebble Mill Facebook Page:
Helen Wheatley: ‘I loved this programme with all my heart and told my parents I wanted to change my name to Artemis as a result of watching…’
Lynne Cullimore: ‘Loved it. I remember talking to Wendy Craig in the canteen and she was worried about which salads contained onion, as she was recording in the afternoon and did not want to breath onion over her fellow actors. I thought that was so nice of her. Loved Butterflies too but we did not do that one.’
Belinda Essex: ‘I remember temping while I was still at college for the Beeb early 80s and Wendy Craig was the first celeb I ever saw there, in the lift up to the canteen – I was very impressed.’
Roy Thompson: ‘Remember showing Wendy how to operate the tea machine, wonderful times.’
