I have seen the film Lolita and I used to watch the series Mickey Dunne in the all too distant days of my youth. Unfortunately, I don't think that it was ever repeated, and as is true of so many programmes of that era, I suspect that no material from it was preserved. The Missing Believed Wiped project has done wonderfully well in discovering material that was not preserved in the Archives of the television companies, so perhaps there is a possibility.
I am more than a little puzzled as to what factors led a person or people to indicate that having liked the series Mickey Dunne would indicate that the viewer would also enjoy the film Lolita.
I would like to be able to add a cast credit, but have no way of identifying the episode to be able to do so in the system. This restriction seems to be something of a flaw in what is otherwise such a wonderful resource. Someone with access to the Radio Times would be able to check the necessary information.
I still remember the music and some of the lyrics of the theme tune of the series, which was put out on record, performed by Vince Hill.
