Michael Alden is an amnesiac, who must discover his real identity before the operatives of a mysterious group locate him and kill him. The key to his past might be "Coronet Blue" - a meaningless phrase he for some reason remembers.
Mike is running from some men when he falls into the harbour. He climbs out remembering only that he was running and the phrase 'coronet blue'. As the show continues from week to week, Mike tries to piece together clues as to his identity as individuals he refers to as Greybeards seem to be intent on killing him. Written by

Because the show was a moderate success, CBS decided to bring it back and have new episodes filmed. However, Frank Converse had already committed to do N.Y.P.D. (1967) for ABC. Ironically, the finale of this show aired the day before the debut of N.Y.P.D. See more »
This was a short lived amnesia spy show that I only occasionally seen..comparisons with the 2011 Liam Neeson flick "Unknown", and as the first reviewer also noted, "Bourne Identity'(forgot that series..). This becomes a real popular theme...but it doesn't get used more often.
This show was so odd that it wasn't rerun..or even given closure (no big surprise for many shows..)..or a video release.
8 out of 10 at least for something unique. Even if it seemed a bit weird. But now with the Matt Damon "Bourne series", and thanks to the first reviewer for refreshing the old cranium here, and Liam Neeson "Unknoqn", this gimmick in a popular state has gotten a favorable status with producers and, as box office shows, fans.
