This eight-part series from Associated-Rediffusion starred Robert Urquhart as the titular detective and Moira Redmond as his attractive ex-wife, Bee. He was always on the point of asking Bee to remarry him but never seemed to get around to it.

Jango was genial and absent-minded, often stumbling across crimes by accident. But he was exceptionally adept at solving them.

The character of Jango was originally introduced in a play called Murder Stamp, which aired as part of the Television Playhouse series in October 1960.
