It all began as a hoax, a stunt, a trick on the part of two cynical young journalists to spite society and thwart the Establishment. The idea was to expose the frailty of circumstantial evidence, and they planned to fake a murder. But the plan went disastrously wrong. Starring John Thaw, Ann Firbank, John Meillon, Peter Bowles and John Abineri. Directed by Patrick Dromgoole.
