This primetime drama series from Rediffusion was set in a London convent and dealt with the various character conflicts, social problems and general activities of the female incumbents (Sort of like Crossroads for nuns).

The main nuns were played by Fay Compton, Alison Leggatt, and Peggy Thorpe-Bates, with a very pretty Joanna Dunham playing the high-spirited young Sister Benedict.

The series was shown at 8 pm on Wednesday evenings.
