East of Suez for Jack Briggs means the oil-rich Sheikdoms of the Persian Gulf. Twenty years a policeman, along the shores of the Gulf he has found the most exotic beat in the world. This ex-PC from Blackpool is now Commandant of Police to Sheik Rashid Bin Maktum, the Ruler of Dubai.
Soon the last of the British garrisons and British administrators in the Middle East will be leaving the Persian Gulf. The remaining British Protectorates there will emerge from the shadows of the Empire on which the sun has set - seven tiny desert sheikdoms of which Dubai is one. But there will still be jobs for British administrators and policemen East of Suez - men like Jack Briggs.
Tonight's film is about an Arab Sheik, his British policeman and the patch of desert they both love and for which they both feel deeply responsible.
