Chubby Terry Scott and slim Norman Vaughan starred in this British sitcom as (who else?) Terry and Norman, a pair of out-of-work actors. Securing employment as entertainment officers at the seaside resort of Bogmouth, the heroes ran afoul of local councillor Bland (Henry Longhurst), who resisted their every effort to pump some vitality into the dreary community. Complicating matters was Terry's blossoming romance with Bland's toothsome daughter (Marcia Ashton). The six half-hour episodes of Scott Free were telecast live by the BBC from July 22 to August 26, 1957; no kinescopes are presently known to exist.
