Televison drama adapted from a scenario penned by Frederick Forsyth. Sunshine, an idyllic and almost forgotten island hitherto under British rule, is set to become independent. However, in the run-up to the island's presidential elections the British governor of the island is shot and killed. The British secret service is called in to investigate, and Sam McCready (Alan Howard) delegates the case to Scotland Yard's Desmond Hannah (Larry Lamb). Lauren Bacall co-stars as the governor's widow, Lady Beatrix Coltrane.
