Trivia

This was an adaptation of "The Hiding Place", the prize-winning first novel by the actor, Robert Shaw. Shaw did the adaptation himself, and played a leading role, but the title was changed to avoid confusion with the then-current ITV police series, "No Hiding Place". Shaw's novel had been adapted already for American TV, and was later the basis for a feature film, but he had nothing to do with either version. See more »
