Terry (Melvin McClymont) and Helen (Barbara Slater, an Olympic-standard gymnast in real life) are two promising young gymnasts who have their training for the county trials abruptly interrupted the day Terry receives an unexpected birthday gift of a watch.
It transpires that the gift is stolen property – Terry’s brother Pete (Kim Smith) is involved in shady goings-on up to his neck.
When Terry and Helen try to investigate why Pete is being blackmailed by a gang of local thugs and attempt to find the whereabouts of a stolen gun, Len Morgan’s (John Price) gym is vandalised as a warning to the young amateur detectives.
This fairly obscure BBC drama benefitted from stunts and action and the expertise of Nik Stuart MBE as gymnastics adviser.
