The Adventures of Sir Lancelot Episode 16: The Ruby of Radnor

The Ruby of Radnor Title Shot

An exhibit of the royal jewels is made complete by the Ruby of Radnor and will be ready for display. However when the treasure is stolen Lancelot is sent to investigate. Brian playfully stumbles across the treasure but also the men that stole the treasure too. Brian is captured and taken away to a castle but not before he sends off a clue. Lancelot suspects a relative of the king but he must be sure before he throws any accusations.

Personal Synopsis

The Ruby of Radnor is the first episode of this series to be shot in colour. The show was gaining popularity in the United States which prompted the studio to move onto colour. The storyline is simple but the show was interesting enough to enjoy it. Not many would openly suspect the Kings relatives for a crime so Lancelot had to justify his feelings.
