I was 14 when I saw this on television. It marked me for life, and 'Strange Interlude' has haunted me throughout my life. Diane Cilento I can recall quite clearly. She made that role for me, both with her grace, beauty and interpretation. I saw Glenda Jackson do the role of Nina Leeds on stage, but sadly Diane Cilento haunted me even then. David Knight, who I think is underrated, was superb as Sam Evans. The final scene with Noel Willman (as Charles Marsden) with Diane Cilento is in retrospect one of the greatest scenes ever played. That it is not available to this new century is tragic as the acting was uniformly memorable. Along with Julian Green's 'South', which I also saw, this was a high point in British television. And one last caveat - why doesn't the great actor David Knight have a Wikipedia entry? He is sill alive. We should at least pay him that homage. Treasures of performances like those who played in 'Strange Interlude' should never be forgotten.
