Executive Producer.......Dorothy Crawford
Editors.......Phil Freedman & Dorothy Crawford

Synopsis: While dining at a city restaurant, Insp. Fox sees two men struggling high on a neighbouring building. One is pushed over a rail and falls to his death, and Fox rushes out to investigate. The clues - a mining company executive, a man with political ambitions and a revivalist minister - seem unrelated until Georgina enters the picture. She 'entertains' gentlemen at a lush city apartment while maintaining the illusion of being a working girl with a suburban flat. A man named Forster is arrested for murder, and Fox is the main witness at the trial, but the evidence presented by the defence counsel throws doubt on Fox's credibility as a witness.

Notes: 2 hour episode - continuing from the normal ending of a Homicide episode into the courtroom. Referred to as 'Homicide Trial', it was originally conceived as a follow-on series. Due to the length of the episode requiring it to be split over two reels of 2-inch video tape, it was officially listed as two separate episodes, 319 'From The Top' and 319A 'Trial'.
