Edward Judd in Intrigue

Intrigue

1966 - United Kingdom

Industrial espionage series starring Edward Judd who, as investigator Gavin Grant, was called upon to ferret out industrial spies in the world of big business. Based on an idea by Tony Williamson and made by ABC, the series never made it beyond the first season of 12 episodes largely due to the fact that the central character failed to capture the imagination of the viewing public. Grant was helped by his assistant/girlfriend Val (Caroline Mortimer). Producer Robert Banks Stewart would go on to bigger and better things.

Alice in Wonderland

Unimpressed with Disney's 1951 animated version of Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland, Jonathan Miller was keen to develop a new version which would bring to the fore undertones of the story that had been glossed over in the often 'traditional' presentation of this classic children's tale.
