Public Eye: A Family Affair (ITV 3 Jan 1973, with Norman Henry)

Published

on

In A Family Affair Frank is asked by solicitor Mr Brown to look into the circumstances of Harriet Thorne, the long time housekeeper to Old Mr Knight. Following his death his sons have discovered that he has left a third of his estate to her.

Both brothers, John and Henry, firmly believe that Harriet may have put undue pressure on their father to be included in his will.

As Frank investigates he discovers that Harriet Thorne has built quite a portfoliio of property thanks to the fact that she has, for years, been borrowing money using Old Mr Knight’s house as collateral.

She also lets slip the fact that Old Mr Knight’s wife is not as dead as she is supposed to be and is living in Eastbourne.

Frank is also working on another case for Mr Brown, a dodgy divorce case in which Mrs Sullivan (played by Jenny Lee-Wright) can’t make up her mind whether to leave her husband or not.

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.
