The Paradise Makers (BBC Thriller, Michael Bryant)



In The Paradise Makers espionage agent James Crieg (Michael Bryant) discovers that a group of eminent scientists working for the Independent Science Corporation are up to something sinister.

Reviewing the serial in the Evening Post (3 Apr 1967) Ralph Slater was impressed saying “this is an absolutely first-rate tale. The acting and the script are of a very high level indeed.”
