Saturday Party, The

By Brian Clark. Stockbroker Peter Barkworth is made redundant but goes ahead with his planned Christmas party anyway, bringing a different air to the proceedings. A fine study of mid-life, middle-class manners and worries, which led to a sequel, The Country Party, in 1977. In 1979 Clark wrote the series Telford’s Change, telling of the abortive attempts of a very similar main character to set up a new life out of London, only for his wife to have an affair. The central character, Mark Telford, was again played by Barkworth.

Screen-grabbery:
Middle class shock! Middle class festivities ruined! Middle class drunkenness!
