Public Eye: Transatlantic Cousins (ITV 15 Sep 1971, with Luan Peters)

Published

on

In Transatlantic Cousins an American couple and their grown up daughter ask Frank to try and track down an English relative of theirs who just happens to be a Sir.

Sir Roger turns out to be a rather likeable but utterly untrustworthy old rogue who is now on his uppers and thinks he may be able to get some cash out of them. Not only that Sir Roger may be hiding something about his title.

Opening with the classic shot of Frank brewing up a cup of tea (something he seems to do at least three times every episode) this is something of a slight episode. The finding of Sir Roger is all a little too easy and the focus is more on the E’ttrell’s than 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.
