Sweeney, The 1974-78 Euston Films

It is had to believe that when this tough no-nonsense hard hitting cop series hit our screens in 1974 that Dixon of Dock Green was still running on the BBC. Starring John Thaw and Dennis Waterman as Regan and Carter detectives in the Flying Squad. The series getting its name from the rhyming slang for this.

Fifty two episodes were made with two feature films being released in the Uk at the time (Not including the appalling modern remake). The series originated from a 90 minuet one of drama made for the Armchair Theatre slot on ITV, called Regan which had been written by Ian Kennedy Martin.
