Adam Kelno has made it to England in the days following World War II. Having escaped from a death camp in Nazi Europe, he finds that his identification with anti-Communists in Poland has made him a target of the Soviet Government, which brings up war crime charges against him in England. When the witness is unable to identify him as one of the doctors who castrated him, he is released. Kelno takes his wife and young son to Saudi Arabia where he labors for years upgrading public health standards. Upon his return to England, he is Knighted. Twenty years have passed and he has just begun to enjoy his life of renown when a book is published that names him as a willing participant to Nazi medical experiments on Jews in the camps. He sues for defamation and finds that not only can he not escape his past, but that the plaintiff in a defamation case has his own reputation on trial. "QB VII" refers to the courtroom in which the trial is held, Queen's Bench, Room 7.

Did You Know?
This mini-series, and the original novel, are a fictionalized version of the real-life lawsuit filed against Author Leon Uris
by Dr. Wladislaw Dering over a one-line reference in Uris' best-selling novel, "Exodus", about Dering's wartime record in a Nazi concentration camp. As in the mini-series, the concentration camp surgical records were produced, but on loan from the Polish government, not after being kept in hiding. Dering, like Adam Kelno, collected only one half-penny in damages and was forced to pay his own substantial legal costs. See more
