Synopsis Bored BBC backroom boy Arthur Pilbeam (Arthur Askey) transmits timekeeping 'pips' over the radio in Morse code, and finds himself banished to Scotland to set up a new weather station at an Orkney island lighthouse. To his delight a boatload of models are shipwrecked - then the girls start to vanish one by one. Nazi spies are behind it, but Arthur gets the better of them, also posing as a mermaid to lure an enemy battleship into a minefield.
