The Sweeney is the Flying Squad. It is a name derived from Cockney rhyming slang (Sweeney Todd = Flying Squad), used by police and underworld alike to refer to this highly mobile force of top London crime-busters. The revolutionary series that introduced a new kind of police drama, The Sweeney depicts the violent clashes between the Flying Squad and the deadly world of organized crime.

Regan's partner, DS George Carter (Dennis Waterman - Minder), is a sharp, South London Cockney. Together, Regan and Carter lead a unit of skilled detectives who infiltrate and bust up London's criminal underworld.The epitome of 1970's style and attitudes, The Sweeney is action-packed with exciting car chases, fistfights, boozing, break-ins, gunfire, brash dialogue and a multitude of talented guest actors.Includes:Chalk and Cheese / Faces / Supersnout / Big Brother / Hit and Run / Trap / Golden Fleece / Poppy / Stay Lucky Eh? / Thou Shalt Not Kill! / I Want the Man / Country Boy / Trojan Bus
