AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'According to Sarge, the worst crime of all is heartlessness — when you know your actions will hurt others but you do it anyway. Mr Streeton, it would seem, is the king of heartlessness, if building a retirement home in the swamp is any indication. Mr Streeton's blunt assessment of Sarge's world- view causes Sarge to reassess himself. His introspection spirals to despair when it appears Mum's wedding ring has been stolen. However, the final blow comes when Lockie admits to Sarge that he is the town's biggest criminal — he knowingly broke Mel's heart. Lockie's heartlessness, Phillip's growing frustration with the science faculty, and a surprise job offer for Mum cause the Leonards to question if they belong in Angelus anymore. Blob, however, has other ideas' ('Crimes of the Heartless' Australian Television Information Archive).
