    Following the success of Anglo-Amalgamated's Scotland Yard and Edgar Wallace Mysteries, the production company scored another hit with Scales of Justice, thirteen dramas based on real-life trials that dramatise events from the alleged crime to the courtroom. As with the previous series, the films were produced at the company's Merton Park Studios to be screened as support features in British cinemas, making a successful transition to the small screen during the 1970s. This set contains all thirteen films, produced between 1962 and 1967. Introduced by crime writer Edgar Lustgarten and complemented by The Tornados' memorably pacy theme music, the dramas feature performances from some of the era's finest, and now most instantly recognisable, actors - including Alexandra Bastedo, Patrick Wymark, Peter Barkworth, Keith Barron, and Barrie Ingham.

    One of the twentieth century's most successful crime novelists, Edgar Wallace's thrillers have been widely adapted for film and television - the most memorable of which are the Edgar Wallace Mysteries series, made at Merton Park Studios during the first half of the 1960s. A noir-esque series, it updates some of the author's stories to more contemporary settings, blending classic B-movie elements with a distinctly British feel. Unseen for decades and freshly transferred from the original film elements specifically for this release, all 47 films will be released over seven volumes on DVD. This fourth volume includes top-notch performances from Alfred Burke, Barbara Shelley, Paul Daneman, Anton Diffring and Dawn Addams, and features scripts by Philip Mackie (The Naked Civil Servant), Roger Marshall (The Sweeney, Public Eye) and Richard Harris (The Darling Buds of May).

As soon as he is released Kip teams up with Steve (William Lucas) the brains behind several heists and together they plan the job that will set them up for life: breaking into a bank vault through the cellars of adjoining bombed-out houses. Their crew consists of Nodge (Terence Cooper) for the heavy work Dodo (Shay Gorman) to handle explosives and Ron (David Brierley) as the driver. When Simmie (Warren Mitchell) supplies the gang with plastic incendiaries they begin their stake out of the bank and work out the best times to begin the drilling and blasting their way into the vault. But just before the gang leaves Kip has a heart attack and has to drop out. Against his better judgement Steve who is strictly the organisation man agrees to go on the job in his place. Meanwhile things start to go wrong...
