The arrival of The Sweeney revolutionised TV police drama, with harmless sleuths and petty crims replaced by hard men with guns pitched against even harder coppers. The formula worked, and The Sweeney quickly became a hugely successful TV series around the world.
Relive the heyday of head-kicking 70s cop show action with Detective Inspector Jack Regan (played by John Thaw) and his devoted sidekick, Detective Sgt George Carter (famously played by Dennis Waterman of Minder).
