  • The adventures of a photo-journalist, successful enough to live aboard his own luxury yacht as he travels the world in search of scoops.

    7.0
    This was - in intention, anyway - the most glamorous of ITV's many efforts to crack the American market at the beginning of the Sixties. They hired a top American TV star - Craig Stevens, a year after he'd finished playing Peter Gunn (ironically, British TV never aired that legendary show); they gave every episode a bigger-than-usual budget; they filmed it in colour, although British TV would remain in black-and-white for another five years; and they went to many exotic locales for filming. They even hired Henry Mancini to compose the theme music, just months after "Breakfast At Tiffany's" had won him two Oscars. But the scripts were the same old drivel, mostly, and the series was a costly flop. The Americans weren't interested.
