1 9 6 2 – 1 9 6 3 (UK)
20 x 60 minute episodes
A black & white action drama series from ITC/ATV starring Craig Stevens as Mike Strait, a trouble-seeking globetrotting freelance photojournalist who is assisted by Maggie (Tracy Reed).
The free-spirited photographer shoots the world’s most fascinating people and gets caught in a crossfire of extortion, espionage and murder.
Strait is a man of honour with world-acclaimed talents and expensive tastes. His bold demeanour and dashing, good looks make him a magnet for beautiful women.
His passion for exotic locales makes him a Man of the World. The series was filmed in the UK but used location footage specially shot in Spain, on the Riviera and other exotic locations.
The episodes ‘Double Exposure’, ‘Dangerous Hideaway’, ‘Love Me, Love Me Not’ and ‘Flashpoint’ were later re-edited into individual telemovies.
The episode ‘The Sentimental Agent’ (pictured at right) was spun-off into its own show of the same name.
The series was produced by Harry Fine with superb music from the immortal Henry Mancini.
