An elite covert operations unit carries out highly sensitive missions subject to official denial in the event of failure, death or capture.
Television Producer Bernard L. Kowalski, who'd been immensely impressed by the general mood and style of The Ipcress File (1965), requested that a similar ambiance and urgency be emulated for this show.
Voice on Tape:
As always, should you or any of your IM force be caught or killed, the Secretary will disavow any knowledge of your actions. Good luck, Jim. This tape will self-destruct in five seconds.
In almost every episode someone has to pick a lock. They insert the pick, wiggle it a few times and open the door. To actually open a lock you must also rotate the cylinder just as you do with a key. For this you would use a second "L" or "Z" shaped pick to exert pressure while you moved the pins with the first pick. This is never done.
Episode titles were not shown on-screen. Although this became commonplace with dramatic series in the late 1980s, it was unusual in the 1960s for a one-hour action series to not have episode titles.
