Daniel Meadows

The film suggested to the photographer Daniel Meadows a way in which he might emulate Benjamin Stone and travel around and photograph Britain from 1973 to 1974.
Inspired by what Bill Jay had said about Benjamin Stone's travel around Britain by horse-drawn caravan, Meadows thought of a mobile version of the Greame Street studio; the Cliff Richard film Summer Holiday suggested a solution.

Grazina Frame

Grazina
The film's producers felt that female lead in the film, Lauri Peters, was not a strong enough singer after several test recording sessions and all of her parts, both in the film and on the soundtrack album were dubbed by session vocalist Grazina Frame.
She recorded a series of singles as Grazina for HMV 1962-1964, and sang with Sir Cliff Richard on several 1960s songs, as a result of having over-dubbed both Carole Gray in film The Young Ones and Lauri Peters in Summer Holiday.
