Sixty-five years ago, today, the British comedy Friday the 13th aired on BBC1. There is very little information on this thirty minute broadcast. It’s simple storyline states:

Ted Ray presents a lighthearted look at superstitions.

Written by John Junkin and Terry Nation, produced by George Inns, the only cast listed is Ted Ray and June Whitfield. IMDb states that it was shown in black & white. The British Comedy Guide reflects “colour.” As best as I can tell, it aired at 7:30pm and it definitely was on a Friday the 13th.

I love British comedy. I wish I could find a YouTube clip or some still photographs. There is just nothing, other than a vague Internet memory of its existence. ~Vic
