| The first episode?
After a gap of 50 years, (I was 12 years of age in 1963 when "Moonstrike" started) my memories of "Moonstrike" are somewhat hazy, but I seem to recall that the first episode featured a fighter pilot who had been badly injured during the Battle of Britain, and who was told that he would never fly again. He persisted in his attempts to return to flying duty, and was told something along the lines of "You may wish to speak to these people, they may be able to offer you employment". Which led him to fly a Lysander for SOE. I remember the series always had one on the edge of one's seat, and it was gritty in the extreme. The theme music was written by the Australian composer Dudley Simpson, (who went on to write the "Dr. Who" music), and it's haunting, edgy theme perfectly matches the subject material. You can hear this music on Youtube as "Moonstrike".Alan Knight
