Heir Hunters, Series 4 Episode 5 of 20

Duration: 45 minutes

George Cashmore died in a nursing home in 2008 aged 80. At first sight his case seems pretty straightforward, but as the team move into action, his past becomes murkier and raises more questions than it answers. Just to add to the pressure, the competition also starts snapping at the heir hunter's heels and the tension mounts to locate his descendants once and for all. This task falls on travelling heir hunter Paul Matthews' shoulders as he goes on a major league heir hunt... Will he bag them all or fall at the last hurdle?

Meanwhile, case manager David Milchard, aka 'Grimble', works the case of a well-loved Oxford eccentric, Raymond Maynard. The tale brims with intrigue and fear, from false names to gangsters to prostitutes; it reads like a bestselling novel. The final cherry on the cake is when they find out the estate is worth an astounding quarter of a million pounds, so there's no lack of motivation for the team at Frasers as they hunt out survivors to this lucrative estate.
