A Flying Squad officer gets embroiled in a deadly political plot

This action crime drama was the first cinematic spin-off from the popular ’70s police series The Sweeney, and was then followed by the sequel Sweeney 2 the following year (qv). This first film features a shot of the frontages to both Barons Court and St James’s Park Underground stations.
