Dixon of Dock Green Collection 1-3 DVD

| 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. [show more]
