My father, Dugald Rankin, a producer of commercials, as soon as persuaded Peter Brook to direct a sequence of commercials for eggs. As this went effectively, my father requested Peter to direct one other, this one for Bar Six, Cadbury’s reply to the KitKat bar.

The set-up was a Chelsea woman charming a meter man out of giving her a parking ticket by sharing her chocolate bar. The meter man was John Junkin. The woman was Jane Birkin – good casting. Nonetheless, midway via the morning, Peter stated: “I can’t do that” and left my father to complete it.
