Network have already become the top film and television label so far in 2019 having released a ton of classic British film and TV on to Blu-ray and DVD in just the first month of the year. Next up are both Sweeney films, Sweeney! (1977) & Sweeney 2 (1978), furthermore both have been restored. The Sweeney is a brilliant TV series about the police’s Flying squad unit that deals with armed robberies. It completely changed the way we all saw the police and crime. This seventies show went for a far more realistic view of crime along with plenty of action. Two films soon followed starring the same cast of John Thaw as Detective Inspector Jack Regan and Dennis Waterman as Detective Sergeant George Carter.
Network had previously started to release the TV series fully restored on Blu-ray but for what every reason failed to complete their own excellent work. Hopefully these two restorations of the films will signal that they are about to continue restoring and releasing the rest of the television series on to Blu-ray.
Let’s hope Network have more classic film and television releases heading to Blu-ray later in the year!
