The Professionals

The Professionals is one of those crime shows I loved as a child, more so even than Starsky and Hutch! Bodie and Doyle were ex-Special Forces and ex-police respectively, assigned to CI5, a unit that specialised in serious crime, especially anti-terror activities. This is a slice of classic '70s TV with a healthy dollop of gun fights and chases thrown in for good measure. Even better, it's currently being re-run on British TV after a long absence. Despite the very dated fashions, the show has actually aged very well- thanks to the talent of writer Brian Clemens I'd say. On top of all that, it has one of the best theme tunes ever to play on TV.
