About the Show:

Leonard Vole is an unemployed inventor, his latest contraption being a new-fangled egg beater. He is married but through a chance encounter, became friendly with a rich widow, Emily French. When Vole is accused of her murder, his solicitor refers the case to a brilliant barrister, Sir Wilfrid Robarts to lead the defence. Robarts believes his client to be innocent but Vole’s only alibi witness is his wife, the calm and coldly calculating Christine Vole. Sir Wilfrid’s task becomes even more impossible when Christine agrees to be a witness not for the defence but for the prosecution……
