The survival rate of this series is very hit-and-miss: the only material existing prior to the sixth season, from which point everything exists in full, is the first season (the eight editions comprising "Menace!" and "Recipe for Danger") plus various film inserts. These were preserved by Mike Womersley, film editor on the series. See more »
The freewheelers were a group of three young (late teens/early twenties) agents who worked for British Intelligence. Their boss was the eye-patch wearing Colonel Buchan, who assigned them onto various adventures around Britain. Each adventure story would last several weeks, and at the end of each episode one of the team would find themselves in some terrible danger, only to be promptly rescued (Dick Barton style) at the beginning of the next episode. The series was aimed at 9 - 13 year old's, and was very popular in that age group at the time.
