They are the Sweeney, son. And they haven’t had any dinner…Relive the most ground-breaking British police drama ever made which coincides with the big screen remake. Regan and Carter are part of New Scotland Yard’s infamous Flying Squad. Mixing with London’s seedy underworld they tackle the crimes to hard to handle for your everydaypolice officer. Remember what the fuss was all about by picking up this diamond 4-disc set which is available in High Definition for the first time now, RRP £39.99. Seventies London has never looked this good. And neither has The Sweeney, son.

We have two copies of the Blu-ray to give away to our readers.
