Public Eye: Who Want’s To Be Told Bad News? (ITV 25 Aug 1971, Glynn Edwards)

In Who Wants to Be Told Bad News? Frank gets involved in a case brought to him by estate agent Alfred Bain who is about to rent out a cottage to Indian Suresh Dhanar. The man, who claims to be an accoutant, is newly arrived in the country and has no references so Bain wants Marker to look into his background.

What neither Bain or Marker knows is that Dhanar has already moved his extensive family into the cottage. Dhanar and his family are also touring the shops of Windsor racking hire purchases at the drop of a hat.
