Program Description

A friend, wanting to ease Richard's financial plight, gives him an investment tip, asking in return only Richard's word of honor not to reveal the source of his information. As the friend had said they would, the shares skyrocket. But Richard, accused of trading on information obtained through his post in the government, is called before a Select Committee appointed by the Prime Minister to investigate the matter. Though it means political ruin, Richard, bound by his word of honor, refuses absolutely to reveal the true source of his information.
