The Four Oaks Mystery featured in the ITV Telethon 1992. Approximately 40 minutes total, watchable quality. A curiosity, to say the least. Very distracting crawl throughout displaying donations.
The Telethon Mystery: Four of the greatest television detectives of all time get to grips with a Telethon special four-part mystery spanning 100 years. The Mystery begins when a coachman and his passenger are brutally murdered.
Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson soon arrive at the scene of the crime. Holmes learns that a fortune in Roman jewels was discovered in the vicinity in 1761 - but mysteriously disappeared - and have never been found. Could this double murder be linked to the missing jewellery?
The scene switches to modern-day Amsterdam, where Inspector Van der Valk is investigating a murder - an Englishman has been poisoned in his hotel room. In the dead man’s room are a dozen items of antique jewellery, so the motive can’t be robbery, can it?
Shortly afterwards, a new file is dumped in Taggart’s in-tray, another attempted murder in Glasgow’s mean streets. The victim is a young woman from London who had previously visited Glasgow with the man who was murdered in Amsterdam. What could have brought her back here alone?
Now the trail leads to rolling English countryside where Chief Inspector Reg Wexford is following up one of his famous hunches. A visit to his old geography teacher and careful study of an Ordnance Survey map lead him to an abandoned cottage at the end of a country lane. But will Wexford finally solve the mystery of the murders and discover the hidden hoard of jewels?
Technical specs for first part only - others range from 7-10 minutes with a short chatty interval indicated as patchwatch.avi.
