4 Extra Debut. A plot to run an escape route for defectors from Britain is exposed in the Outer Hebrides. Stars Edward de Souza. From 1969.

A story of espionage in the remote mist-veiled islands of the Outer Hebrides.

Lonely and withdrawn, the islands stand like a breakwater off the north-west coast of Britain. Beyond them, out in the Atlantic, foreign trawlers maintain constant patrol, keeping an eye on the rocket range on South Uist - and on other things

A strange discovery is made. Could it be the sign of a plot that leads all the way to the Iron Curtain?
