Series 4 Episode 5: Playback

Electronics genius Harold van Wyck married into wealth and power, but the high-living inventor has wasted hundreds of thousands of dollars pursuing extravagant experiments and he's about to be ousted as head of the family owned Midas Electronics. The only thing that has kept Harold's iron-willed mother-in-law, Margaret Midas, from firing him before is her devotion to Elizabeth, her sheltered invalid daughter.
