I remember this series being shown on ITV on Saturday night in 1963 at around about 7 'o' clock in the evening.
It was an anthology series, set aboard an ocean liner, which would have made it easy to film, due to having to build only a few sets to work on. It had different guest stars in leading roles each week.
The first episode starred Pete Murray, the disc jockey, before he started presenting. He played the part of a man who the script writers cleverly made tv audiences think that he had committed a crime. I think his love interest was Heather Sears.
This was one of Pete Murray's rare and overlooked acting rolls. He was, and still is at the age of 92, a great personality.
I also remember the haunting music that accompanied this series. The music suggested a mixture of romance and suspense. I am surprised it did not become a hit record and the composers were not able to do more with it.
Anthology series were quite popular on ITV in the 1960s and early 1970s - not seen so much on television these days.
I think the only reason why it only survived one season was that it may have been in competition with what was being shown on BBC at the time. This was the problem with many series, with only two TV channels being in existence and recording devices not being commercially available in those days.
