Henry Jay, a quiet civil servant in his mid-30s, was working on a case of computer fraud when he, quite by chance, unearthed a massive financial conspiracy.
He decided to investigate further and, despite the close attentions of a shadowy agency known as Le Pouvoir and various bureaucratic attempts to silence him, Jay proved to be a determined detective, discovering clues that pointed to the involvement of a Euro MP by the name of Hugo Jardine.
Following the success of this four-part drama, dubbed “a thriller for the electronic age”, a sequel (imaginatively titled Bird Of Prey 2), was made in 1984. In this, Henry – now on the run with his wife, Anne – continued to expose the murky activities of Le Pouvoir.
