Adapting R.F. Delderfield's classic story of love, lust, crime and betrayal, this mini-series centres around a young bank clerk whose yearning to escape the mundanity of small-town life in the 1930s is answered all too readily when he falls for an exotic beauty with dangerous intentions.

First aired in 1990, Come Home Charlie and Face Them was the final project of North Wales-born actor and writer Alun Owen, a key figure in 1960s television drama whose credits include the Oscar-nominated screenplay for A Hard Day's Night and scripts for landmark anthology series Armchair Theatre.

Charlie Pritchard is a bank cashier in a small Welsh seaside town; lodging with bank manager Evan Rhys-Jones, he forms a relationship with Ida, the banker's earthy, quietly determined daughter. Ida's simple appeal pales, however, beside the promise of passion embodied by the seductive Delphine – who with her brother, Beppo, runs the lively Rainbow Café. Charlie and Delphine are irresistibly drawn together... but each for entirely different reasons.
