A scientist (Nicholas Selby) comes under increasing strain while preparing for the testing of a top-secret defence project involving forces of terrifying potential power never before harnessed. One, bureaucratic pressure to hurry through the test before all the equipment has been fully checked. Two, a suspicion of sabotage is in the air. Three, the haunting fear that something could go wrong, and four, his wife’s fallen in love with one of his colleagues. Nicholas Selby (who went on to join the staff of the BBC soap-opera magazine Compact) played the stressed physicist."---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo
