TV 098: The Sweeney - Harry South
Beyond brilliant, The Sweeney ran for four series between 1975 and 1978 (following a 1974 pilot called Regan).
It paired John Thaw with Dennis Waterman as two no-nonsense 'ard detectives.
The violence was realistic and both leads were far from being perfect.
That made it even more enjoyable.
The theme tune was composed by Harry South.
This is his extended re-recording with some fantastic mid-section guitar playing.
Comments and feedback are welcome.
