Fraud Squad: Where’s George (ITV 1 Jul 1969, with John Abineri)



Fraud Squad Where's George John Abineri

In Where’s George, prominent businessman George Carroway has gone missing, the private plane he was on having disappeared over the Irish Sea. His father-in-law is convinced that Carroway was murdered by his business partner who has become romantically involved with. Meanwhile Gamble and Hicks are more concerned about the fact that £50,000 seem to have gone missing with him.

Thanks to some strange phone calls (from various parts of Europe, including Paris, Hamburg and Zurich) it starts to look like George may not be dead at all.

Another fun episode with a lead role for John Abineri as the missing George, slightly off putting is the fact that the wig he is clearly wearing doesn’t quite fit.

The episode aired at a later time than normal on it’s original broadcast thanks to highlights of Prince Charles’ Investiture at Caernarvon being shown from 8.30pm-9.30pm.
