Jack Warner starred in this first major police drama on British TV. When the show started on the BBC in 1955, youthful-looking Warner was already an old man, but he stayed for another 21 years, by which time firstly 'Z Cars' and then 'The Sweeney' had made 'Dixon Of Dock Green' look a tad dated.

That said, Warner's George Dixon character, with his friendly "Evenin' all", was the kindly bobby on the beat so missed by today's increasingly fragmented and selfish society.

Dixon had been shot dead by Dirk Bogarde in the British film classic, 'The Blue Lamp (1950)', so writer Ted Willis was taking full advantage of artistic license by reviving his creation.
