Watching the Detectives – US Style

Welcome back to the podcast which celebrates growing up as a child in 1970’s Britain and the central part which television played in our and our families’ lives then.

In this episode, we look at the huge number of US cop and detective shows which formed a staple of 1970’s TV programming. Our host Oliver runs down his Top 10 of shows including favourites like Kojak and The Rockford Files. We remember husband and wife double acts in Hart to Hart and McMillan and Wife and the underrated Serpico. We also hear about Barnaby Jones starring Jed Clampett (sorry Buddy Ebsen) and can you guess who makes the #1 spot?
