IN BRIEF - an introduction to the main locations and new faces of Chigley woven around the arrival of Lord B's 'secret' -the Dutch Organ featured in the omnipresent end-of-episode dance sequence.
We start with a quick re-acquaintance tour around some of the people of Camberwick Village Green and end up with Doctor Mopp outside his house.We ride with him to Chigley Pottery.But this isn't a medical matter,he's an old friend of the Farthing family and wants to buy a flower vase for his sister,Millicent.Opting for one "that's the same colour as her drawing room curtains",he asks to see how they're made and gets a potting demonstration from proprietor Harry Farthing.And he'd like to see him make some others as he's not in a hurry that particular morning,but Harry has more pressing matters to attend to,and rings Winkstead Hall to ask if 2 crates of pottery can be taken to Treddles Wharf for him.And trusty old retainer Brackett takes the first of many calls and many walks along the hallway to inform,"his lordship" Lord Belborough -a man who's always happy to stop what's he's doing to fire up his steam train,Bessie.
So off they both set,accompanied by the 1st strains of the immortal "time flies by when I'm the driver of a train" (instrumental only).They load up at the pottery and with the Doc and Harry's daughter,Winnie along for the ride, head off for the Wharf -this time accompanied by the sung version of "time flies by"
Once there,Mr.Rumpling's barge arrives carrying a large packing case for Lord B which pleases him because he'll "be able to get it working today in time for the whistle".And we cut to Doctor Mopp driving back to Camberwick Green,as we're told all the unloading/loading was completed and he enjoyed his ride back to the Hall on Bessie.But he's puzzled about the significance of "the whistle" reference,and asks around the villagers before getting the answer from Mrs.Honeyman....
Cue the daily 6 o'clock end-of-day whistle at Cresswell's Chigley Biscuit Factory,when the workers all walk the short distance to the grounds of the Hall for an open air dance presided over by his Lordship.And where we get to discover his "secret".........a newly unpacked,brightly painted Dutch Barrel Organ,which provides the accompaniement.
TRIVIA: No mention of how Doc Mopp gets from the Hall back to his car at the Pottery
