The Case

Produced as a joint project between the BBC and the Swedish broadcasting authorities this aired in 1972. It was primarily a Cliff Richard vehicle but also starred comedian Tim Brooke Taylor, singer Olivia Newton-John and a few other, now obscure, musical guests. The plot was thin - a comedy based around Cliff trying to get rid of a stolen suticase of money which he'd inadvently picked up on his way to Sweden.
