Critics take up arms against the arms
An interesting attempt to freshen up the adventure series format. This concerned the escapades of arms dealer Joe Hine.It fell flat on its face after only one season having been heavily criticized for having an arms dealer as the hero. It did however enlighten viewers at the time, for showing arms dealers not as grubby miscreants living in the back of beyond, but educated, suited and booted 'Joe Hines'. The titles would be the first point of any annoyance by its critics, it showed Joe in his Rolls Royce indicating he has done very well in selling guns and ordinance.However (perhaps in response to the criticism?), Hine does meet his match in the final episodes,with something none of us can fight. IE The Inland Revenue a tense battle, the result of which will not be spoiled here.The show itself was mostly studio bound concentrating on the drama of the deals rather than action with guns. Good first lead for Barrie Ingham and good last lead for Colin Gordon.
