This three-part British miniseries took place in Northern England during WWII. Title character Darkie Pilbeam (Trevor Bannister), a none too successful petty crook, managed to rise to the top of his profession by running a profitable black-market operation. Inevitably, Pilbeam's world crashed and burned, but it was fun while it lasted. As much an anthology as a series (each episode was self-contained), The War of Darkie Pilbeam first aired in Britain from July 12 to 26, 1968.
