Man of the World: The Complete Series
Michael Strait is a high-flying photo-journalist whose business takes him into every corner of society - from the glamour of the catwalk to political hot spots the world over. With an eye for trouble, his job gives him licence to go wherever there’s a story - he is truly a Man of the World!
Not seen since the 1960s, Man of the World is much sought-after by ITC aficionados and fans of action-based television the world over. Starring Craig Stevens (Peter Gunn) as Michael Strait, every 50-minute episode contains mystery, danger, daring antics and the quirky humour much loved by fans of other ITC shows such as The Saint, The Persuaders! and Danger Man.
Featuring performances from many high-calibre guest stars (including Alfred Burke, Anthony Quayle, Warren Mitchell, Patrick Troughton, Derren Nesbitt and Patrick Wymark), the stories are tightly plotted by writers Brian Clemens (The Avengers, The Professionals), Tudor Gates (The Sweeney), Michael Pertwee (The Saint), Julian Bond (Tales of the Unexpected) and Marc Brandel (Danger Man). Amongst the directors are feature-film directors Charles Crichton (The Lavender Hill Mob) and Charles Frend (The Cruel Sea). This five-disc set contains all 20 episodes in production order.
