1x05 Dog Eat Dog (July 04, 1969)


Thirty thousand pounds seems a lot to pay for a prison escape - even for a gold robber - and the criminal fraternity aren't always as nice to each other as people think. The jackals, always waiting in the shadows, are useful enough while they stick to scavenging; it's when they get greedy that they become troublesome... then they have to be dealt with.
