Hadleigh: The Diplomat (ITV 5 Mar 1971, with Dawn Addams)

Published

on

In The Diplomat James is in Germany to conduct some business with the Prager family. The family are currently being filmed by a Swedish TV unit for a documentary. The director is a man called Max Frank and when Hadleigh meets him he recognises him as a former University friend. Frank though claims not to recognise Hadleigh.

Once they get chance to talk in private Max tells James he is really investigating the Prager family’s ties to the Nazi party. Oskar Prager, who was a diplomat before entering into business, is about to be sent to re-enter diplomatic service with a prime posting to Washington.

Frank has uncovered evidence about the Prager factory using forced labour during the second world war, he knows it will have a massive impact if the info gets out. Frank is determined to stop Oskar’s posting and he want’s Hadeligh’s help to do so.

Quite a non-typical episode, James may as well not be in it, having very little to do but look concerned at the revelations produced by Frank.

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.
