Emerging from the Play for Today anthology series in 1975, Philip Martin's near two-hour-length play Gangsters proved so popular that a series was commissioned and followed eighteen months later. Following the lead of such gritty cop dramas as The Sweeney, Gangsters revealed a world of racial segregation and ghettos in the style of American television; and it didn't hold back on the violence or bad language either.

Former SAS officer John Kline (Maurice Colbourne) emerges from prison to find himself employed by DI6 (a highly specialised branch of the CID) as an undercover agent to monitor and report on and intercede, where required, in the events of the Birmingham underworld. However, he soon develops some particularly unpleasant enemies, more often than not, finding himself caught between the two opposing forces.

Featuring all the episodes ever made, it's time to get (re)acquainted with John Kline in this truly groundbreaking television show.
