Lucille starts work at the mill. Jerry tells an angry Len that he broke the plane and will replace it. Ken gets a letter from the GPO telling him Dennis' phone will be a party line with the Barlows'. Albert refuses to co-operate when David wants to buy him a new overcoat. Lucille agrees to pay the Walkers £2 10/- a week housekeeping on the condition she also saves some. Albert is secretly delighted when David buys him the new coat. Alan Platt leaves a hand-made toast rack in the Builder's Yard for Jerry.


Regular castEdit

Guest castEdit



  • In an example of the 'as live' approach to recording at this point in the programme's history, during a scene with Jack Howarth, Alan Rothwell can be seen looking off-camera, whereupon a female voice audibly provides his next line of dialogue so that the scene can continue without a re-take.
  • TV Times synopsis: New surroundings for Lucille and Albert
  • Viewing Figures: First UK broadcast - 4,990,000 homes (chart placing unknown - the BBC scheduled Steptoe and Son directly opposite this episode of Coronation Street resulting in a lower than usual figure).
