“Zero One” was the call sign of the International Air Security Board, an organisation based in London and dedicated to the safety of air travel all around the world.
Its chief agent was airline detective Alan Garnett (Nigel Patrick) and he was called upon to combat hijackers, prevent disasters and generally preserve peace in the air and at airports.
Jim Delaney (Bill Smith) was Garnett’s assistant and Maya (Katya Douglas) his secretary.
The series was co-produced by MGM but, er, crashed in the USA where sponsors shied away from its narrative matter of sky-jackings, trafficking and sabotage.
