Thriller writer Jason King is brilliant, if at times erratic. He is physically as well as mentally active. His achievements are legion – racing driver, skier, mountaineer, explorer, free-fall parachutist. His talents and achievements are various and legendary. No longer attached to DEPARTMENT S in any way, he is free to roam the four corners of the earth at will – usually accompanied by gorgeous girls galore. Every type of adventure befalls him. Trouble tracks him down all over the world. His inquiring mind takes him into everything from international intrigue to local revolutions as he seeks inspiration and background for his best-selling Mark Caine novels. But through it all, he copes with everything in his own elegant, flamboyant manner. Anything can happen to Jason King – and does!
Peter Wyngarde, with his own unique style and humour, reprises the role that propelled him to worldwide fame in this 8-disc Special Edition set including all 26 episodes of the ITC action classic.
