The long-awaited and highly anticipated Blu-ray, DVD & iTunes release of The Professionals is finally here. Experience it as you have never seen or heard before.

Relive some of the best car chases ever featured on TV in this action packed classic 70s series, with crime busting legends Bodie and Doyle. They are The Professionals.

The Professionals Mk1 has been restored to have:

  • Brand new, High Definition transfers and restorations from the original negatives.

  • Brand new high definition restored from camera-original negatives.

  • Brand new 5.1 tracks from original sound elements.

  • Remastered original as-broadcast mono tracks.

  • Remastered music-only tracks featuring Laurie Johnson’s original scores.

  • Reinstated original main and end titles.

  • Certificate 15.


Bodie and Doyle need little by way of introduction, but if the series had at all escaped you since its debut in 1977, their boss George Cowley, head of CI5 couldn't put it more succinctly than his opening gambit: "…anarchy, acts of terror, crimes against the public. To combat it I've got special men experts from the army, the police, from every service. These are The Professionals". Featuring the perfect ensemble cast of Martin Shaw, Gordon Jackson (completely against type here) and the much-missed Lewis Collins, the series ran for 57 action-packed episodes and made an immediate impact on British and then international audiences, which has been sustained for 35 years. Painstakingly restored from the camera-original negatives, the series could have been made yesterday. No matter how many times you have seen The Professionals, the series has never looked this good.
