Martin Ferrera (David Ballantyne) is the son of the high commissioner (Peter Arne) in London of the British state of Tingaree.

Strange events have led him to believe that his country might be threatened and he sets out to thwart these threats with the help of Sandy (Vivienne Cohen) the fashion-mad daughter of the commissioner’s chauffeur.

The duo needs all their inventiveness as they match wits with the sinister Torres (Leon Lissek) and the murderously clever mercenary spy Drew (Valentine Palmer), who is also a master of disguise.

The Tingaree Affair is packed with mystery and action as the two young people fight to ensure that Tingaree gains her independence but does not fall under the military dictatorship of neighbouring Caris.

Eager to exploit Tingaree’s valuable mineral resources, Caris plans to wreck the independence talks in London.

This Thames Television production aired on Wednesdays between 21 May and 2 July 1969.
