Those Radio Times Advent Calendar: Dixon Of Dock Green
Those Radio Times Advent Calendar winds back some 43 years to December 5, 1970 today to an episode of the classic police series Dixon of Dock Green entitled Shadows.
Resurrected for television after a fatal gunshot wound courtesy of Dirk Bogarde in the film The Blue Lamp, Jack Warner's PC George Dixon was given his own television series which ran for 21 years from 1955 to 1976.
