A series of four dramatisations of 20th-century kidnappings narrated by René Cutforth 3: Diplomatic Hostage
James Cross, British Trade Commissioner in Montreal, Canada, was a senior and respected figure. In October 1970 he was kidnapped by four young men belonging to an extremist French-Canadian group calling themselves. Front de la Liberation du Quebec. They demanded the release of 21 political prisoners, £200,000 in gold, and safe passage to Cuba. The Canadian Government led by Pierre Trudeau refused to bargain. Then the Minister of Labour in the Quebec Government. Pierre Laporte , was kidnapped and the FLQ reiterated their demands. A few days later Laporte's body was discovered in the boot of a car. With the Canadian Government adamant in their refusal to accede to terrorist demands, the future for James Cross looked very bleak indeed.
