Dixon Of Dock Green - Collection 1 to 3 DVD

Dixon Of Dock Green - Collection 1 to 3 DVD
This collection features every surviving colour episode of one of the longest running police series on British television – and one of the best-loved. Aired between 1955 and 1976, Dixon of Dock Green starred the popular Jack Warner in the role of Sergeant George Dixon, in a series that set the tone for television police drama and paved the way for all that would follow. Filmed on set and on location around the fast-disappearing dockland community of London’s East End, the character of Dixon, with his friendly and informal ‘Evening all’, offered viewers the kind of policeman you’d be tempted to welcome into your home for a cup of tea – even if you’d just robbed a bank. Featuring episodes filmed between 1973 and 1976, this collection includes the final series, the 22nd, in its entirety, and also features a wide range of specially filmed cast and crew interviews, along with a tribute to the series’ star, Jack Warner. In a modern world of CSI, DNA, and CCTV, much has changed and much remains the same in these still-gripping and utterly compelling episodes of Dixon of Dock Green.
