Frank Wheatley

It has been very difficult to find information on Frank in the early years. I imagine that the 2 great wars may have something to do with it. It wasn't till the early 60's that he was mainly involved in television.

In early 1963 Frank landed a part in the television series "Ghost squad" Frank played the part of Giovanni in the second series of the show. He started in episode 15 called "Mr Five Percent"
 
Frank was cast in the ITV Television Drama "Playhouse" playing the part of the pensioner alongside a very young Richard O'Sullivan.
