Overview

As originally produced in Britain between 1975 and 1978 and aired on ITV (The Independent Television Service), the police drama series The Sweeney follows the colorful exploits of "The Flying Squad," an elite, top-tiered group of London crime-fighters dedicated to effectively eradicating organized crime from British streets and neighborhoods. John Thaw stars as DI Jack Regan, an officer whose overwhelming commitment to his career completely ruins his marriage. He is assisted, in his various cases on the force, by DS George Carter ($Dennis Waterman), a Cockney detective from South London. The program attained recognition and controversy at the time for its unusually high quotient of homicides, car chases, drunkenness, bare-knuckle brawls and take-no-prisoners dialogue. As issued by B.F.S. and Freemantle Media, this set contains all 14 episodes of the first season of The Sweeney, including the pilot, digitally restored from the original elements.
