143 The Terracotta Horse
First watched : November 1973
My memories of this six-part serial on a Monday are very vague and there isn't much on the net to jog them. It was something of a cross between The Long Chase and The Da Vinci Code. A young girl found the titular horse and it was somehow linked to the Holy Grail with a villain in a Citroen joining the chase.
The girl was played by Lindy Howard and it appears to have been her only acting job on screen. Her brother was played by a young Patrick Murray ( Mickey Pearce in Only Fools and Horses ) .
It was never repeated and must be presumed wiped long ago.
