Synopsis by Hal Erickson
This British comedy-drama series starred Peter Barkworth as middle-aged London bank executive Mark Telford. Hoping to change the direction of his go-nowhere life, Telford asked for and received the opportunity to relocate to a smaller bank in Dover, while his city-loving wife Sylvia (Hannah Gordon) remained in London with their teenaged son. Much to the chagrin of his superiors, Mark "went bohemian" in a big way, living on a houseboat, dressing casually, allowing his customers to take all the time they wanted to repay loans, and helping the locals with their financial problems on his own time, a habit that caused him a great deal of trouble as the series unfolded. Meanwhile, Sylvia tried to remain faithful to her absentee husband, only to succumb to the charms of handsome theater director Tim Hart (Keith Barron). The ten 50-minute episodes of Telford's Change were telecast by BBC1 from January 7 to March 11, 1979.
