Euston Films would have just been completing shooting & post production on S2 of the "Sweeney".
I have an ATV Index card for the local news on the night I was born - it was a shite news day.
1) Drunken Tramp died after setting himself on fire in a skip in Tipton.
2) West Midlands Police hold "open season" on anyone Irish - dragging them in over the 1974 Pub Bombings.
Frightened by Horror Films? - Just remember, BEHIND the camera stand even more horrifying individuals moaning about the Catering food, the hours they work and quoting Union Rules... that's just the Electricians.
