The Protectors is a classic detective series, created by Gerry Anderson and Reg Hill,the duo behind Thunderbirds, Joe 90, etc. The series revolves around the adventures of private detectives Harry Rule, (Robert Vaughn) , Contessa Caroline DiContini, (Nyree Dawn Porter) ,and Paul Bouchet, (Tony Anholt)

Although the episodes are short,at around twenty-five minutes each,there is quite a lot of action crammed into that time. There is not a dull moment within any of the whole fifty-two episodes,and Tony Christie's theme song,Avenues And Alleyways,is a classic.

Really enjoyed it, like many of the good series in the late 60's early 70's I only ever saw a few as I was always going out, so it's nice to be able to see all the episodes of the ones that caught your eye
I think Robert Vaughn and his character Harry Rule really make the series but he's well supported, all in all a very good series and so much better than many things they put on the TV now

The series has some stories what remind me of the Cold War paranoia the Europe before the wall came down even some before
the wall when up. There is glimpse into a world of fast cars sunshine and the rich or neo rich Europeans and the odd ball American
who has been left over after the war. It hints of military secrets etc. I found it good but the acting by Nyree Dawn-Porter laboured and her character a little dated. She plays kind of countess who does not seem to have any money but seem to live off her friends. Unlikely, in a Italy and Spain with republican governments.

This takes me back, loved watching this in the early 70's. I love most 70's TV anyway. It's good the episodes are only 25 mins long full of action too. A shame only the wonderful Robert Vaughn is still alive and still acting, what a man!

Love the theme tune Tony Christie what a voice and a bonus. Can thoroughly recommend this DVD to all lovers of 70's crime series. The extras are not that great just stills from the episodes. Apart from that it's brilliant.

I can remember The Protectors when it was on ATV in the Midlands originally between 1972 and 1974 though at the time I didn't realise it was a Gerry Anderson Production. It's great entertainment - I'm currently watching them again. A little dated now but that doesn't matter - it's good fun. Highly recommended.

The episodes are really short, only about 25 minutes, so there isn't much time for the storyline to develop. I still like it for the 70s atmosphere and the "exotic" locations.

The Protectors

A Good Idea From Legendary TV Producer The Late Gerry Anderson

Made A Change From Futuristic Settings In The 21st Century & Beyond

A Good Cast Too

Good old fashioned TV Series, with famous actors adding to an enjoyable mix, where you can imagine all having an great time making the episodes. So much better than the violent and aggressive TV series that are currently on offer!!!
