Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Having gained control of the African nation of Lombuanda, despotic Henrik Durvard (John Van Dreelen) has compounded this outrage by confiscating a 27,000-carat diamond. He intends to sell the diamond to the highest bidder in order to finance the invasion of his neighboring nations. The IMF's assignment is to retrieve the diamond while simultaneously toppling Durvard from power. As part of a complex "sting", Briggs and Barney pose respectively as the owner and operator of a diamond-manufacturing machine. Written by William Read Woodfield and Allan Balter, "The Diamond" was originally telecast on February 4 1967.
