Editorial Reviews

Kirby (John Gregson) is ex-army intelligence. Now he's a mere insurance salesman. Or is he? Returning from a trip to France, Kirby finds himself being shadowed by two agents. An innocent bystander, Laura (Prunella Ransome) helps him to escape. But how innocent is Laura? Afterall, her stepfather is a high-ranking civil servant named Roger Thane (Patrick Allen) - and it's his operatives who are following Kirby… Who can Kirby trust? Suddenly Kirby's French contact is dead, the KGB and CIA are all involved, and an assassin is after him. Just what does he know...?

5.0 out of 5 stars WELL WORTH WATCHING! January 2, 2011
DANGEROUS KNOWLEDGE is still a gripping yarn, even after all these years (it was first shown on British t.v. in 1976 after JOHN GREGSON's death in l975) The story keeps us guessing with many twists and turns. Excellent picture and sound quality.
Highly recommended for all thriller fans!

Southern Television presents Armchair Thriller Series ~ "DANGEROUS KNOWLEDGE" (19 May 1976) (UK) (148 min/Color) (Dolby digitally remastered) --- Would call this a thriller that has many twists and turns ---Deals with accusations that there is a traitor among us --- The plot keeps us in the dark, as we see the story through the eyes of our main character Kirby who is a mystery within himself, while maintaining a degree of suspense --- Highly recommend this six episode thriller that will satisfy many doubting fans of television made series.
