Premise:
Cases from 'The William J. Burns International Detective Agency'

Each story began with Ken Franklin being given his latest assignment
by William J. Burns. Apart from the top of his head and his hand
'Burns' himself was never actually seen. While this was taking place
an off-screen announcer told us that 'Though these stories are based
on real cases from the secret files of the W. J. B. Detective agency,
the names of clients and locations have been changed to protect their
privacy' Produced in documentary style, the series was one of the best
of its genre.

Among the guest stars were:
Shirley Anne Field, Lisa Gastoni, Maxine Audley,
Louise Collins (panelist on BBC's "What's My Line" around that period),
Freddie Mills (boxer), Lee Patterson, Andre Morell, Julia Arnall.

Scriptwriters include:
Gordon Wellesley, Guy Morgan
Story Editor Guy Morgan
