Two episodes of the early 1980s BBC drama series based on the short stories of crime writer Agatha Christie.
In 'Magnolia Blossom', Theodora Darrell (Ciaran Madden) is set to elope to South Africa with her lover - and business associate of her husband - Vincent Easton (Ralph Bates).
But when she learns that her uncaring husband Richard (Jeremy Clyde) is facing financial ruin, old loyalties resurface and she returns home.
In 'The Case of the Discontented Soldier' the recently retired Major John Wilbraham (William Gaunt), bored with civilian life, answers an advertisement placed by a Mr Parker Pyne (Maurice Denham) promising an adventure.
Before long he finds himself rescuing Freda Clegg (Patricia Garwood) from two burly attackers and embarking on a daring adventure to find treasure in the wilds of Africa.
