The cobalt-rich Arab country of El Hari is on the verge of civil war and must stay united to prevent invasion. The best hope of stability is to restore the Bey, in exile in Rome,but he is reluctant to leave his playboy life-style and Sharron knocks him out so that she and Craig can fly him into El Hari. A wireless operator at the landing stage warns the Bey's enemies of his arrival, and the journey is continued in a truck across the desert. The Bey is shot by a sniper and tribesmen host the trio but when the Bey learns that Said, his supposed aide, has paid them to kill him, he resolves to resume his rule. The travellers still have to reach the capital, however, and face another attempt on the Bey's life. Written by

As they spot their "escort" in the desert (at around 37 mins) their jeep is fairly modern (for the time). As they progress the rear tarpaulin sheet/door changes from closed (30:16) to open (30:34). As they stop at the Arab camp a few minutes later, they are in a different jeep. It's, for example, older, paler in colour, has a shallower bonnet, mud splashed (as opposed to clean) front windows, different side windows (no deep first one, different sized second and third ones) and a front wheel arch which drops down to the bumper (which the newer jeep did not have).
