DVD Description
Series 1: A fly-on-the-wall documentary series about an elite police unit's bid to snare one of Britain's most powerful crime lords. But things are not quite what they seem... Operation Good Guys is in fact an innovative and irreverent comedy. Blurring the line between fact and fiction, it witnesses, on camera, the total breakdown, professionally and personally, of the Operation Good Guys team. Throughout the operation, The 'Good Guys' have an unfortunate habit of embroiling into their calamitous world some of the country's best-known celebrities, from actors and footballers, to TV presenters and even the odd ex-convict. Series 2: The first series won the Silver Rose for Best Sitcom and the Prix de la presse at Montreux 1998. Now DI Beach and the team are docu-soap stars, the police have no choice but to reunite them. Barry Couch, the constabulary's newly appointed razor-sharp PR consultant, organises a number of "controlled" showcase operations, from traffic calming in Camberwell to perfume scams on the Costa Del Sol, to prove the previous operation as a one-off failure. But with BBC producer Clive Tollack looking to manipulate every situation for television effect and Barry Couch trying to stop him, and with the Good Guys only beginning to come to terms with the pressures of their newfound celebrity, one thing is for sure - nothing will go to plan. Series 3: The hilarious spoof-docu-soap - set in a disaster-prone police station - returns. As the BBC commissions ever-more unrealistic scenarios, DI Beach and his colleagues find themselves dressed as women; giving road-safety classes to schoolchildren; investigating corruption in boxing; and generally misunderstanding the brief.

Too many funny bits of it to mention, but love the dead police dog that got burned / raffle..and the time they have to go out into the comunity dressed up as normal people, thanks to the South African Police Chief...lol.

So...funny!!! Go buy!!!

not seen this but reading the comments i guess its a comedy.
just wouldnt make sense otherwise

Already have it on VHS ( HUH?) worth every penny, love it!
BUY IT..............

This is a top show ... with cameos from Jude Law and Johnny Lee Miller. In fact I might start watching this again when I get home.

good price,
anyone notice that they put canned laughter in series 3? i think it ruined it but still love this series regardless

voted hot, operation good guys rocked!

Ray Burdis is now a Boxing Ring announcer...

Good spot.

#Here we come ready or not, we're gonna get you#

One highlight was the Drugs Squad that took their role too literally.

The episode with the leader was well funny.

I remember paying £40 in fopp for this some years ago, its an absolute must. The Xmas variety show episode is one of my particular favourites even with the awful canned laughter

I drive by the hendon police training place everyday and it always make me think of the good guys in there screwing things up

1 of the best TV shows ever ever ever made

Great price for a cracking series - ordered and heat added.

Ordered, one of the funniest comedies ever. Still don't know why Anciano and Burdis havn't done much since. Also Perry Benson is great in this too!

Wow ... forgot all about this! What a fantastic series...

Brillian series!
