Essentially a re-release of Michael Powell's 'The Edge of the World (1937)', but with color 'bookends' in which director and actors revisit the island of Foula forty years later and talk about their experiences.

Every episode of this series featured top rank actors. It covered assorted aspects of spying and dirty tricks. The directors and writers were also prominent e.g. Hugh Williams. The episode 'The Frantic Rebel' featured Jill Bennet, Stanley Baxter, Donal Donelly, Roger Livesy and other well known names. The director was none less than Michael Powell. The ethos of the artists in the varied areas of production of the series was predominantly left wing yet plots demonstrated the methods of the K.G.B. Concurrent with the Kennedy assassination, was this, like the 'The Manchurian Candidate' a 'water muddying' exercise. The series vanished. Frank Sinatra allegedly sat on the performing rights of The Manchurian Candidate for 25 years!
