He maintained his popularity through music, which displayed an extraordinary variety of content, structure, tempo and rhythm and an authentic emotional connection that transcended mere craft. Celebrating the 75th birthday of Roy Orbison, 'The Monument Singles Collection' presents The Big O's core classic catalogue the way it's meant to sound).

Randall & Hopkirk (Deceased) - Episode Two: A Disturbing Case

A Disturbing Case was the second episode of Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased) and was first broadcast on the ITV Network on 28th September 1969.

Jeff's car is stolen and used in a robbery, whereby the perpetrators use hypnotic suggestion to rob wealthy upper class businessmen.

Concerned for Jeff's mental health after hearing him talking to himself (in reality, Marty), Jeannie's sister Jenny (Judith Arthy) places a hidden tape recorder in a drawer in his office to capture him doing it again. When they have a "one-sided" conversation on tape, Jenny and Jeannie arrange to send Jeff to a Dr. Conrad (David Bauer) at the Lambert Clinic Nursing Home.

Retaining Jeff against his will and filling him with illegal drugs, it happens that Conrad is the mastermind behind the robberies, in league with a criminal known as William Smith who enters each household and robs the customers as they are hypnotised by telephone.

Dr. Conrad uses hypnosis to erase Marty from Jeff's mind, but Marty manages to impersonate Dr. Conrad's voice in order to communicate with Jeff. He instructs Jeff to break out of the facility and eventually the Police are led there, arresting Dr. Conrad and his associates. Jeff claims that his "talking to himself" was all part of an elaborate ploy to get him placed in the Hospital, and celebrates his success by taking the two sisters to dinner.

The exteriors for The Lambert Clinic Nursing Home were shot at The Grocer's Institute on Grange Lane, Letchmore Heath.
