John Buchan's exciting mystery.
Adapted by Judith Kerr.
[Starring] James Hayter and Richard Wordsworth
Richard Wordsworth and James Hayter in the story of Huntingtower
What was the secret of the great deserted house overlooking the sea from the lonely peninsula on the Scottish coast? Why was the house so closely guarded by the silent men who would have no dealings with their neighbours' in the village below? In Judith Kerr's adaptation of John Buchan's most exciting novel Huntingtower you can see how chance brought together strange partners to solve the mystery. A retired grocer, a poet, and a band of tough, ragged Gorbals Boy Scouts combine forces to uncover the secret.
The grocer, Dickson McCunn, will be played by James Hayter, well known to all viewers and filmgoers, and making his first appearance in a Children's serial. John Heritage, the poet, will be played by Richard Wordsworth, and Dougal, the leader of the Gorbals Diehards by Leo Maguire who will be remembered for his performance in Kidnapped.
