Gideon's Way: Season 1, Episode 26
Based on storyline in Gideon's Lot. Gideon defuses a gun siege where a small time crook went out of his league in the hope of a big robbery before retiring. Meanwhile, a couple in their fifties (Eric Barker and Joyce Grant) who have lived a life of petty crime try to do the same thing with a big wages snatch but Gideon has his eye on them. Gideon portrays the friendly cop in this episode, trying to help criminals who are obviously on the downwards path. Also starred William Mervyn.
