Re: Never Forgotten
thankyou, it was just lovely to hear his name mentioned.

The other time was on Sunday night when "codename wildgeese" was shown on one of the movie channels on sky when my heart did a tripple leap .

Don't have Sky, so that explains that.

Yes, it is nice to hear him mentioned - I just wish they'd give The Professionals a proper airing.

It's still good enough for evening viewing.

mmmmm i know what you mean . They do sometimes repeat the show on ITV 4 but with huge amounts cut out.

After hearing one or two interviews on tv i think the violence is too much but it could still be shown at a later time . It would be great to see it back on tv.

To be fair, although ITV4 do edit quite extensively, I couldn't say they butcher the eps.

But if they were shown in the evening, after the watershed, say, they could be shown uncut and unedited.

I'm not sure about Klansman - I don't think the racism would be controversial now - things have moved on - but it's so naively handled I think the crassness of it would be offensive. Although they could put up warnings and show it much later.

They repeat The Sweeney too, but I don't think it holds up as well as Pros.

Re: Never Forgotten
i'm sure they could show the programme again definitley after the watershed the show is still as good as it's always been.

I'm not sure about klansman ..i still think some people would complain about its content .

I'm not too bothered about The Sweeny , it wasn't as good as The Professionals imo.
