TV-series Mission: Impossible

Phil Morris, Peter Graves, Jane Badler
Directed by Colin Budds


Several high officials in the Egyptian government have been found murdered by strangulation. It is believed that Horus Selim, the director of the Egyptian Museum, is somehow involved. Selim firmly believes that Egypt should try its hardest to return to its glorious and powerful past ruled by Pharaos, and has criticised the government's policy of negotiating with foreign countries. Jim Phelps and his team of agents are sent to Egypt on a mission to determine whether or not Selim did have something to do with these murders, and to make the killings stop before they interfere with impending peace talks in the Middle East.

First episode of the "Mission Impossible" series remake, which ran for 3 years and a total of 35 episodes. The original series was aired television between 1966-1973.
