Invisible Relic - Original Airdate : 1975-09-28
CBC comedy-drama television series which ran from October 1, 1972 to December 12, 1990 and is the longest-running dramatic series ever made for English Canadian television. In all, 387 episodes were produced. The Beachcombers followed the life of Nick Adonidas (Bruno Gerussi), a Greek-Canadian log salvager in British Columbia who earned a living travelling the coastline northwest of Vancouver tracking down logs that had broken away from logging barges. His chief business competitor is Relic (Robert Clothier), a somewhat unsavoury person who will occasionally go to great lengths to steal business (and logs) away from Nick. The series also focused on a supporting cast of characters in Nick's hometown of Gibsons, often centering around a café, Molly's Reach, run by Molly (Rae Brown), a motherly figure to virtually all the characters in the series (including Relic). Molly had two grandchildren living with her, Hughie (Bob Park) and his younger sister Margaret played by Nancy Chapple in the first season then by Juliet Randall from the second season onward.
In this episode, Nick and the Reach family banish Relic to Conventry and declare him invisible because they believe he has killed McLoskey. Relic discovers advantages to the situation and Nick and Margaret decide to exorcise him to stop the mischevious goings-on. Cast: Bruno Gerussi, Robert Clothier, Rae Brown, Juliet Randall, Bob Park, Stefan Winfield and Reg Romero. Guest cast: Ivor Harries and Jackson Davies.
