This story assumes that experimental research has allowed memories to be transferred from one person to another by injection. Though technically science fiction, this story is really another cold war tale at its best. The memories are those of an aged German scientist held captive in the USSR after World War II. Considering that this was made for TV, the production value is high. The acting is also very good, and there are many colorful European locations. The story holds together well, as our hapless young volunteer (who received the injection) discovers more and more about the aged scientist and the kind of life he had. Imbued with wartime memories and secrets, he is pursued by CIA and KGB agents. Made in 1970, it is also dated, which adds to the fun!
