How About It, Frank? (28-29.11.74),

It's possibly a little surprising that the first three episodes broadcast, all forming a serial and set in Windsor, were not produced until late in the run. Production on How About It Frank? was held back after Lifer was rescheduled.  Two of the three Walton episodes with Peter Childs opened proceedings but the third came much later.  


Public Eye - Frank Marker Investigates

The final series sees plenty of comings and goings: Windsor, Walton and finally Chertsey. Broadcasts were again fully networked from 9.00 to 10.00 pm but, unlike the last three series, switched to Mondays.

The 1977 repeats were in afternoon slots usually across the ITV network and from 2.25 to 3.20pm unless otherwise noted. No Orchids for Marker was omitted for some reason. UK Gold broadcast all of them in the Spring of 1996.
