Public Eye: Home and Away (ITV 31 Jan 1973, with Bryan Pringle)



In Home and Away Madge Reading is convinced her husband Don might be using his obsession with running his works soccer club as cover for an affair.

It’s a very low key episode with much of it taking place in the lounge room of the Reading’s as Madge tries to convince Frank of her husband’s unfaithfulness.

It could be part of a plan on her part to make her husband jealous but she is also genuinely convinced that he is playing away – the answer when it comes is that he is playing at home! With the next door neighbour when Madge is out!
