In a letter sent to the British Prime Minister he threatens to blow up the center of London if the Government don't announce the end of any research in this field within a week. Special agents from Scotland Yard try to stop him, with help from the scientist's assistant future son-in-law to find and stop the mad man. Written by

Seven Days To Noon is another masterpiece from the Boulting Brothers and, as you would expect is superbly written and directed.
The much-under-rated Barry Jones is simply wonderful as the kindly professor with a moral dilemma. The cast succeeds in maintaining the tension nicely and Andre Morell is particularly convincing as the Superintendent, however I feel the most impressive part is the documentary-style photography, which allows the viewer a most interesting and revealing snapshot of post-war London.
Anyone who enjoys the classic English dramas of the 40s and 50s will love this.
Not to be missed.
Please somebody bring it out on DVD soon!
