In "Eyewitness," Howard Duff stars as a newspaper reporter taken hostage by a group of angry convicts.
As the episode opens, Mr. Kelly is touring a prison in order to acquire background material for an article. At the start, the gruff warden warns Mr. Kelly not to try to print anything without his permission.
Towards the end of the tour, Mr. Kelly's guide suggests they visit the oldest cell block in the prison, the one where the "bad ones" are kept. Mr. Kelly agrees, but as soon as they walk through the doors of the creepy old building, they are taken hostage! Is it a jailbreak? No, it's a prison mutiny!
Will Mr. Kelly be one of their victims? Or, will he be able to help them get their story out?
