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

Published

on

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.

Hazell and the Suffolk Ghost

In Hazell and the Suffolk Ghost our intrepid hero pays a visit to the seaside when an accountant, Peter Harlow, calls him in over a cottage he has been left in a will. He has no idea why he has been left the cottage but since he has taken over ownership more than a few strange things have been happening.

Hazell stays at the cottage for a few days and manages to find no small amount of comfort when Harlow’s wife Stephanie turns up (Harlow himself is in New York). Although there is clearly something spooky going on it’s definitely man made and it doesn’t take Hazell too long to work it out.

The episode was a rare outing outside of London for the series, it was filmed in the East Anglian village of Walberswick and surrounds. Although all the interiors were filmed in studio of coure.
