Here's a timely tribute to the 1970's cop series that defined both the era and the genre. The show features interviews with Ray Winstone and Nick Love, the director of the new movie version of The Sweeney (co-starring Plan B), as well as all the key characters from the original series, including actors Dennis 'Sgt George Carter' Waterman; John Thaw's widow Sheila Hancock, Lynda Bellingham, Alan Ford, Billy Murray and real Flying squad officers from the seventies.The concluding part of A Mother's Son follows at 9.00pm. Or you could opt instead for a repeat of The John Thaw Story which is on over on ITV2.
