- The first of the 'Five FInd-Outers and Dog'. Five children watch a cottage being burnt down and make up their minds to find out who started the fire. They find their 'clues' and make out their list of 'suspects'. Then they set to work, helped by Buster, the Scottie Dog, and hindered by 'Clear-Orf', the village policeman.
