Episode Summary

EDIT
Act Of Riot
AIRED:
"Will ye no come back again…?"

Richard Hannay returns to Strathallen, the village in Scotland where he was born and where he spent the first seven years of his life.

He meets Alison Ross, his childhood friend, who is now the village schoolmistress. She is engaged to Lord Malcolm Drysdale, an impoverished nobleman, who in an endeavour to meet crippling death duties is selling some of the land belonging to his estate to a mining company who want the land for a colliery.

This act will cripple the community of Strathallen, which is comprised mainly of farmers. When they discover that Hannay is in fact a Mining Engineer, he suddenly finds that he is not at all welcome, although this is pure coincidence, as Hannay is simply visiting the town of his birth.

Into this explosive atmosphere walks Logan, a troublemaker who is working for the Mining Company but who pretends that he is representing the farmers. Trouble occurs for Alison when it is discovered that Hannay is staying with her, albeit as an old friend only, and her home is attacked, ransacked and grafitti scribbled all over the walls.

When Hannay witnesses a further crime, he is required as a witness, and thus must stay in Strathallen until the hearing. He finds that he is attracted to Alison, and she to him.

Ultimately it is left to Hannay and to Lord Drysdale to resolve matters.moreless
