"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: It's the maiden voyage across the Atlantic of NPS Crusader, a nuclear ship that cruises at over 34 knots. For Commodore Grant it's a proud moment with Britain seen to leading the world with it's futuristic design. However in the cabin next the reactor physicist Michael Holland is predicting a Titanic-sized disaster. He'd worked on the pilot project and knows all the pitfalls. Passengers are given a tour of the ship by technical expert Tony Roman, who reassures everyone, except Holland who is less than convinced, that the ship is safe. But a childish desire by a female passenger to press the buttons in the allegedly dead back-up controls start a chain of events that leads to a possible disaster.
