Dixon of Dock Green DVD

| DVD

One of the longest running police series on British television between 1955 and 1976, Dixon Of Dock Green was also the best-loved. Starring the popular Jack Warner in the role of Sergeant George Dixon, the series 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.In these first available colour episodes, the Dock Green police must deal with cases as diverse as a vanished policeman; a mysterious assailant of young women; police protection of a witness to murder; a charming crook with friends in the right places; the hidden world of spousal abuse; and the police shooting of an unarmed criminal.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.
