Z Cars (UK)

Z-Cars or Zed Cars (yes, definitely Zed and not Zee) was a police drama which ran through the Sixties and Seventies. A Z-Car was codename for a crime patrol vehicle. It was based in fictional Newtown which was remarkably like Kirkby, Liverpool with accents that matched that area of England. First really gritty depiction of police work in the UK.
