When Day Is Done (1975)

Many years ago I caught a little bit of an excellent Edward Woodward programme on TV and I've been searching for it ever since. I only remembered that he was playing an upright piano and singing the song "Kalamazoo" in a hauntingly sad way. I couldn't get it out of my mind. Woodward tended to play sad and introspective roles. A shady government agent with no friends, carrying a pistol. Callan. But this was much sadder than that.

Now after 30 years I've found it! "When Day is Done", an episode of Thames Television's
Armchair Theatre from 1975.

The DVD is sold on AmazonUS (~$64), or AmazonUK (~£17) but in both cases the format is PAL region 2. Sadly I live in NTSC region 1. Oh yeah, there are ways around this formatting problem.
