Public Eye: They All Sound Simple At First (ITV 1975 with Diane Keen)

In They All Sound Simple at First Frank, now in a swish new office and working with Ron Gash, is trying to recover money owed to a cabinet maker for an antique clock. Frank though soon discovers a veritable hornet’s nest of family troubles.

There is a strong supporting cast that includes Philip Madoc, Diane Keen and Peter Bowles as well as a young Karl Howman and Sean Arnold (best known for playing Barney Crozier in Bergerac).

Quite strange to see Frank out of his shabby office and into one with all mod cons, Gash even persuades Marker to get a new suit!
