Heartbeat borrows from Hell Drivers

This evening's episode of Heartbeat featured an unscrupulous haulage contractor who demanded that his drivers drive dangerously fast.

All of which will be familiar to anyone who has seen the 1957 British thriller Hell Drivers.

Borrowings by modern TV serials from old films are not unknown. I remember an episode of Foyle's War whose urchins collecting salvage came straight out of A Canterbury Tale.

Later. Youtube has the trailer for Hell Drivers.
