John Bingham's novel, 'Five Roundabouts to Heaven', was adapted for "The Alfred Hitchcock Hour" TV series as "The Tender Poisoner" (first aired 20.12.1962), by writer Lukas Heller. The 60-minute program featured Dan Dailey as Philip "Barney" Bartel, Jan Sterling as his wife Beatrice, and Howard Duff as their friend Peter Harding.

Harry attempts to call home from a Restaurant; instead of getting a connection or a busy signal, he get's an "out-of-order" chirp. He dials "O" and tells the Operator that his home phone is O.O.O., he gives her a five digit number, then looks in the phone book and finds his next-door neighbor who of course has the traditional "Waddington 1234" number" used in 1949.
