Storyline

Family man Keith Amery goes camping on the moors alone and sees a helicopter land but falls and hits his head, bringing on amnesia. On the advice of Eddie's old psychiatrist, Keith's wife asks Eddie to help Keith recall events, but with little success. At the same time an Australian girl called Denise arrives at Radio West, claiming to be a presenter seeking tips from Eddie. Whilst Eddie is occupied with Denise, her associates track down and abduct Keith. It transpires that he saw the dummy run of an exercise by Denise and her accomplices to spring a serving prisoner, Tom Laidlaw. Eddie 's task is to find Keith and stop the operation.
