This series was from the same genre as Man from U.N.C.L.E, Randall & Hopkirk Deceased and also came around the same time as all the Gerry Anderson productions such as Thunderbirds and Captain Scarlet. All shows that appealed to me as a child.
This series was my favourite though as it had that little something extra. The show focused on three secret agents of the organisation Nemisis, who during a mission to recover a biological agent, during their escape their plane crashes in the Himalayas. Doomed to die up there on the mountains, when all seems lost, a lost civilisation of Tibetan Monks save their lives and are also given special powers such as super strength, speed, agility, telepathy and ESP. The three agents head back to the world where they can use their new powers in fight against villains intent on destruction, drug-smuggling, espionage and kidnapping.
The characters themselves were very interesting, Craig Sterling (Stuart Damon) was the American of the group, very slick and certainly James Bond-ish, the ladies man of the group. Richard Barrett (William Gaunt) was the English opposite of Sterling, very calm, relaxed, calculating and very dry in personality and humour. Sharron Macready (Alexandra Bastedo) was the female of the group, trained in a variety of fields and having the beauty to match her powers that set her high above any other female agent character in any other show.Read more ›
This is the introduction to this classic British series made by ITC in 1968. This series is simply just fun. You cannot take this too seriously because its beauty is that it is pure escapism. To some people it may seem like a lot of nonsense and hokum, but for me the show works because it is tongue in cheek escapist good fun that isn't too bogged down in depressing and serious true to life stories. It also works because it comes from a quality company ITC. The series is well produced with good pace and inventive plots. The stories are outside the box.
There are four main characters. There is the boss of "Nemesis" called Tremayne. Then there are the three agents with special powers that help them to maintain peace in the world. American Craig Sterling, British agent Richard Barrett and Sharon McCready. They have senses that are finely tuned. They can hear, see and smell better than the average human. They also have enhanced strength and stamina. And they all have a telepathic link to each other.
Their boss Tremayne who is based in Geneva gives them assignments that are aimed at avoiding incidents of world tension. The three agents work closely as a team and get into all sorts of adventures. They always keep their special powers secret to protect the anonymity of the lost city that gave them these special attributes.
This gives some light humour as often they have to come up with an alternative explanation to give to Tremayne as to how they managed to complete their mission.Read more ›

The worst of the ITC series. The scripts are poor, the filming is bad, the acting is appalling.
