The title character in this British comedy-drama series was a petty crook named Turtle, played by John Landry. In league with fellow thief Razor Eddie (Michael Attwell), Turtle hijacked a truck shipment of safety deposit boxes. Although the actual cash value of the boxes was nil, Turtle and Eddie were able to use the contents of each box to blackmail a number of prominent citizens. The question posed by the series: Were the crooks' victims any better than the crooks? The seven 60-minute episodes of Turtle's Progress were seen over Britain's ATV in 1979.
