James Garner stars as Jim Rockford, a private investigator who lives and works in his trailer in Malibu, Los Angeles. Jim is an ex-con who had been imprisoned for five years in San Quentin for armed robbery which he did not commit and for which he was later pardoned.

Jim has a quarter page advertisement in the Yellow Pages, drives a gold Pontiac Firebird and has an answering machine, which plays at the beginning of every File; "This is Jim Rockford, at the tone leave your name and message and I'll get back to you". A person then leaves a message which has no relevance to the episode but is often humorous.

This action packed 70's series shows Jim avoiding trouble in the form of ex-cons he associated with in prison, as well solving crimes. Somehow, Jim's laid-back, easy charm always make sure he comes out on top. Look out for guest appearances from characters from the Magnum PI series.

Used to be one of my favourite programmes way back then.

Still love the theme tune.

Great price for a 6 disc set.

Voted HOT & REP given.

Can any Tranmere fans out there confirm if this is true, or a Wikipedia hoax?!?!?

English soccer team Tranmere Rovers FC have been connected with the show since the early 1980s. To this day, the players still run out before every home game to the sound of the Rockford theme on the tannoy. The reason for this has been lost in the mists of time; however, one possible explanation could be that during the 1980s the team played often on Friday nights. This was at the same time as the show was being aired on British TV; thus the theme became a tongue-in-cheek reference to what the alternative could be for the fans instead of watching a struggling fourth division team playing on a cold and wet Friday night.


Top 'vintage' telly by the way....
