Professor Max Stevens (Bernard Kay) is a brilliant but erratic metallurgist who has discovered a form of steel that is immune to metal fatigue.
Unfortunately, the concept of “built-in obsolescence” keeps much of the industry solvent so agent Martin Kennedy (William Russell) of Group S, Internal Security, is ordered to contact Stevens in order that his discovery can be saved for the nation and protected from the international commercial interests who would seek to stifle it.
Diana Maxwell (Rosemary Nicols) is Kennedy’s assistant.
