- The poem To Sarah is credited to Cliff Gerrard who later wrote four episodes of the programme between December 1981 and May 1982 (though Jack Howarth mispronounces the name as "Chris Gerrard"). The end credits spell it as "Sara". It is not a traditional Lancashire poem but was a modern composition. Set to music, it appeared on the LP Best O' T' Bunch by The Oldham Tinkers in 1974.
- TV Times synopsis: A night's fun in the Rovers ends in trouble - theft and the regulars being caught drinking after hours. Suzie's amorous plans are interrupted.
- Viewing Figures: First UK broadcast - 15,365,000 viewers (4th place).
