London millionaire playboy, James Hadleigh (Gerald Harper) returns to his Yorkshire birthplace (the fictional town of Westdale) and buys the small local weekly newspaper his father founded.
Hadleigh’s plans to turn the Gazette into a relevant force for change upsets its plodding editor, Frank Walters (Jon Laurimore). Gillian Wray costarred as rookie reporter Sue Jackson.
This 13-part drama series was from Yorkshire Television. James Hadleigh returned in 1970 in the series Hadleigh with Gerald Harper once more playing the suave, sophisticated country squire who championed the underdog.
