The Agatha Christie hour – EP07 - The Mystery of the Blue Jar (Tuesday 19th October 1982)
The Agatha Christie Hour was a ten episode program, based on ten short stories written by Agatha Christie, and it dealt with widely diverging themes.
Some of the stories were romances, and these were fairly wide ranging, covering juvenile romance and also more mature romance was introduced into a couple of the stories; several of the stories dealt with the supernatural, and a couple were charmingly light-hearted youthful adventures.
The Agatha Hour was set in the England of the nineteen twenties and thirties, and much care was taken to present it as authentically as possible, with great attention to detail. It featured many of Britain's best actors.
Adapted from a short story in 'The Hound Of Death And Other Stories' by Agatha Christie.
On the golf links young Jack Hartington hears a woman's voice crying "Murder! Help! Murder!"
Jack races in the direction of the voice and comes upon Felise Marchaud, a young Frenchwoman living in a cottage nearby. She is sceptical about his remarks and claims not to have heard anything.
Several days later under almost identical conditions Jack hears the cry again, and then starts to doubt his sanity.
At Felise's suggestion, Jack enlists the aid of Dr. Lavington, a psychiatrist, who finds that the supernatural events surrounding the cottage seem to have some connection with a blue jar purchased some months previously by Jack's Uncle George.
Jack is persuaded by his new friends to fetch the blue jar, which turns out to be Ming and priceless beyond value.
A cautionary tale of youthful inexperience and naivety from the pen of Agatha Christie.
