Synopsis

Double bill featuring both big screen spin-offs from the classic 1970s TV crime drama. In 'Sweeney!' (1976) a multinational oil cartel starts blackmailing the British Minister for Energy in order to secure its position in the world market. Inspector Regan (John Thaw) and Sgt Carter (Dennis Waterman) of the Flying Squad are soon called in to investigate. In 'Sweeney 2' (1978) the high-speed pursuit of a gang of ruthless bank robbers results in the death of an innocent bystander and the near fatal injury of Regan's favourite driver. Ordered by their new chief Dilke (Nigel Hawthorn) to apprehend the criminals by whatever means, Regan and Carter find themselves relying on the information of their old boss Jupp (Denholm Elliot), who has just been sent down on corruption charges.
