The big day arrives and the group, with many thousands of supporters, arrive in London as planned. While many march on Whitehall, Jimmy takes over the BBC News studio to further inform people about the demonstrations taking place throughout London. The scheme fails however as journalist Morton Radstock has given the police full details of what was to take place. The group must therefore return to Miss Hackstraw to see whether they have done enough to claim their money.
