Public Eye: Shades of White (ITV 22 Sep 1971, with Lesley Anne Down)

Published

on

In Shades of White Frank is asked by wealthy local businessman Allan Biddersloe to look into the activities of his young daughter who he thinks has got in with a bad crowd. The beautiful Lesley Anne Down plays Anne and she is something of a spoilt brat but it’s clear that Frank is being played not just by Biddersloe but also by Inspector Firbank who seems to be pushing Frank into investigating a series of burglaries that are linked to Anne’s friends Jeremy and Simon.

There is a nice bit of flirtation going on between Frank and the Biddersloe’s housekeeper Barbara too but there is a sting in the tale as it’s actually Barbara who is brains behind the robberies. Much to Frank’s disgust.

The young woman who plays the shop assistant at the start of the episode is better known as writer Adrienne Conway who penned the excellent 1980’s sitcom Streets Apart.

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.
