Strange Report (1969)

Strange Report is a British television drama starring Anthony Quayle as Adam Strange. It was produced by ITC Entertainment and first broadcast in 1969. Adam Strange, a retired Home Office criminologist, solves bizarre cases – which had been marked "Open File" by various government departments – with the help of Hamlyn Gynt, Evelyn and Professor Marks. He employed the latest techniques in forensic investigation, which he undertook in his own laboratory in his flat in Warwick Crescent in the Maida Vale/Little Venice area of Paddington. Unlike other ITC productions, which were created in order to be sold to the U.S. market, Strange Report was created in collaboration with NBC's films unit Arena in the United States with the suggestion that the first half of the series would take place in the United Kingdom and the second half would see Strange visiting the United States. This fell through, which explains why such a short season of episodes was created. The second series also fell through because Quayle and Wills decided not to continue due to personal concerns. In the United States, NBC broadcast Strange Report from January 8, 1971, to September 10, 1971. It aired on Fridays from 10:00 to 11:00 p.m. Eastern Time throughout its American run.
