Creamguide’s pick of the day

  • Public Eye, Thursday, 21.00, Talking Pictures TV

    No Pops or Blue Peter today, although the birthday show is repeated in its usual slot, so we’ll take this opportunity to alight on this repeat run which actually began last week but which we didn’t mention because we’re a bad listings guide. This was a giant show in its day, running for a decade and even bridging the gap between ABC and Thames. And that huge popularity is especially notable as it was a pretty downbeat show, never being afraid to show the darker side of crime and its consequences, and even sending its hero, Alfred Burke’s Frank Marker, to prison for a bit – which is where we think these repeats are picking up, so it’s well worth catching.
