"Armchair Theatre" was a British television drama anthology series, which ran on the ITV network from 1956 until 1968 in its original form, and was intermittently resurrected at various points during the 1970s. It was produced initially by ABC Television, and in the 1970s by ABC's successor company Thames Television. The word 'mystery' in the title was added to several early episodes.
Synopsis: A story of a group of Irish navvies working on a muddy hospital building site. Work is already behind schedule in very trying conditions. Experienced general foreman Desmond Docherty knows the men are at breaking point so how can work be speeded up? When t workmen are already near to breaking point.
A blustering new boss knicknamed "Trumbull the Terrible" arrives to make the cuts neccessary to get the job finished on budget. Reading the riot act to site manager Erskine Craig he fails to understand any of the technical problems involved in the building trade. He also takes a shine to secretary Mary Riley, asking her to come away "strictly business" for the weekend. Though she's in love with Craig, she consents. When "Tough nut" Scanling is appointed new foreman and Docherty given notice all hell breaks lose.
