40 years ago, what a long time. Nice to see something about the lads in the here and now.
Although the cars in the first season weren´t nice. The Capri became very popular because of this gorgeous show.
Thank you for your posting

yes where has 40 years gone, it's flown by so quickly. I still remember The Professionals being aired in the uk for the first time and me being hooked ever since.

The capri was then an iconic car (especially the silver model)

You are very welcome and thankyou for looking.

The 'late, great Lewis Collins' - I think I like this journalist! You can register with the Telegraph for free and read it. Thanks for pointing it out.

Ahh yes "the late, great Lewis Collins" what more can you say about him. What a legend and my favourite actor EVER . I rushed out yesterday to buy a copy of the newspaper which turned out to be a different image from the one online and a full page spread of the lads.

Thankyou for looking and for your comment.

Forty years, where has the years gone and i still remember The Professionals being aired in the uk for the first time (though i was only eight years old at the time) and i'm still hooked on the series even now.

The newspaper article is different to the online version and i managed to buy myself a copy yesterday.

Thankyou.

That was a lot of fun. I LOVE that scene where Bodie gets clapped by the commuters, it always makes me laugh! It pops up on the CI5 twitter feed sometimes and I always retweet it.

Oh cool! And thank you so much for sharing that article. I'm not in the UK this month and wouldn't have known there was such an article (and yeah... I don't read the Telegraph either 😆😉)
