"I swear to blow the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth

Warning: Spoilers
TV series from the 1960s usually have long outworn their welcome. I caught this one about a blind ageing jazz musician/composer on Talking Pictures TV, and its a well deserved revival. This is clever, sharp, entertaining and at 30 minutes doesn't waste a moment, let alone outstay its welcome. If the central character is a crusader, he is a most thoroughly human one. In this episode he receives an (implied) offer from a very attractive young woman which he finds very difficult to refuse but this too is deftly woven into the story. The law content is just right to interest and entertain a lay viewer - this time on enforcing musical copyright with no evidence.
