Across its successful ten-year run, the quirky inquiry agent casebook of Public Eye became one of ITV’s greatest drama successes. Frank Marker – as played by Alfred Burke – was a loner whose immense integrity and dogged looks won him a legion of fans in millions of homes across the United Kingdom. This exclusive new book is an exhaustive, in-depth look at the creation, production, broadcast and reception of all eighty-eight editions, from its debut in the North and Midlands via ABC Television to its days as one of Thames Television’s greatest chart-topping hits.
Written by noted television historian Andrew Pixley, this is the definitive account of Frank Marker’s remarkable career.
