Programmed To Kill

Inga Madison is the creator of 'Computex', a computer with the ability to think faster than the human mind. Her husband, Ralph, suspects her of having an affair with the handsome Stuart Crosbie, and hires a private detective to keep tabs on her. His worst fears are confirmed.

Ralph uses Computex to devise an ingenious method of murdering Inga, in such a way that it appears accidental. When Inga next tries to enter the Computex building, the security system will short-circuit, causing her to be electrocuted. But something goes wrong. Ralph is killed instead...

Computers with big egos were very much in vogue in late '60's film and television. Stanley Kubrick's '2001: A Space Odyssey' had HAL-9000 killing the crew of a ship bound for Jupiter; 'Colossus: The Forbin Project' warned of the dangers of entrusting nuclear defence systems to machines. Here 'Computex', ostensibly used to plot a murder, begins acting independently of orders. As one would expect, the technology now looks prehistoric, but its a gripping story all the same.

Future 'Dallas' star Barbara Bel Geddes occupies the role of 'Inga Madison'. Sue Lloyd, of 'The Baron', is her associate 'Barbara Rossiter'. Jack Hedley, who plays insurance investigator 'Adam Frost', was reunited with writer Michael J.Bird in 1977 for the romantic thriller 'Who Pays The Ferryman?'. Allan Cuthbertson, a.k.a. 'Ralph Madison', was in numerous dramas and comedies, usually cast as smooth villains, as well as appearing ( as himself ) in 'The Tommy Cooper Hour'.

Directed by Rex Firkin, future executive producer of 'Budgie'.
