Alfred Burke stars as down-at-heel inquiry agent Frank Marker in this critically acclaimed, long-running drama series. Always working the lower end of the spectrum – divorces, missing persons, bankruptcies – the highly sympathetic character of Marker found great affinity among the viewing public, with Public Eye’s enormous popularity enduring throughout its ten-year lifespan and beyond.

It is remarkable that some of the earliest episodes from this superb, slightly downbeat series survived at all, given the propensity to wipe tapes/destroy old film. The picture and sound quality from some of the earliest b/w episodes is variable but worth persevering for the superb performance of Alfred Burke as the central character, Frank Marker. The episodes largely feature cases that are everyday, even mundane but the quality of writing and the honesty of the performances make them both engaging and believable. It is a joy to see so many faces appearing in very early roles: Timothy West, Roy Dotrice, Stephanie Beacham, Tessa Wyatt, Colin Baker, Peter Sallis...the list just goes on and on. The location work is also fascinating - the vehicles of the 1960s, the lack of traffic, long lost buildings and streets... Not to forget the strictures of society back then. It all makes for a thoroughly entertaining, absorbing and thought-provoking series. Although there is one episode that is duplicated and the switch between b/w and colour of episodes from the same series' can be confusing, this is no way detracts from a marvellous period piece and some great acting. I can wholeheartedly recommend this set to both young and old.
