Episode Summary

EDIT
A Night at the Ballet
AIRED:
CBS are looking after security at the Theatre Royal for a charity gala. One of the ballet dancers, Jan Melzer, is quite obviously scared stiff of her agent, Eckford, and Kelp, a thug who is working for him. At the party after the performance, Jan tells Laura that she and her fellow dancer Peter Sorreno desperately need help to escape from Eckford and Kelp. Harry is captivated by Enrica Montanini, an opera singer at the gala. He persuades her to give an impromptu performance at the party to distract Eckford's attention. Acting as decoys, Rocky and Laura dress up as Peter and Jan, and Eckford chases them through the empty auditorium. Meanwhile Peter and Jan escape to Ken's boat. Jan tells Ken that Eckford is threatening to reveal that Peter was arrested for drugs offences when he was younger - unless she co-operates with him. She says that the only person who might be able to help is her uncle, Tony Margiotta, who fled from America to Britain after a family argument. Ken traces him to a theological college. As Ken approaches him, Tony panics and runs off, screaming "don't shoot" - he thinks that Ken is a hit man. The story comes out: Tony was running an import/export business in America but fell foul of Eckford. Tony's business partner was murdered. Jan confesses to Peter that she has betrayed her uncle: Eckford was using her to lead him to Tony. Eckford and Kelp have followed Jan and Peter to the boat and kidnap them, keeping them in their hotel rooms. Ken manages to get a message to Peter which he inexpertly attempts to pass to Jan. Eckford intercepts the note, in which Tony says he will meet Jan in the Robin Hood dark-ride exhibition. However it is all a set-up: after Eckford and Kelp scramble amongst the models of Robin Hood, waiting to shoot Tony, they discover that it is Ken sitting in the dark-ride car and that the police are waiting outside.moreless
