Location: 100 Hammersmith Road, W6

Description: 'The Sweeney' was a British television police drama focusing on two members of the Flying Squad, starring John Thaw and Dennis Waterman, an elite branch of the Metropolitan Police specialising in combatting armed robbery and violent crime within the Metropolitan...and it was brilliant!

And so to Colet Court, it was here in a disused school that Ted Childs, Tom Clegg, Terry Green, Trever Preston, Roger Mardshall, Ranald Grahame and Troy Kennedy-Martin, ceated The Sweeney which went onto revolutionise TV police drama and beyond, it changed the way people made TV.

Casting John Thaw and Dennis Waterman was inspired and soon came the lines that we all loved so much and that have gone down as Copper Gopsel... 'Shut it'...'Put your trousers on, you're nicked'...'We're the Sweeney and we haven't had our dinner yet so beware'!

And as a bonus, some of the classic Sweeney car chases were filmed in the car park behind, by the actors, come on...they were The Sweeney - of course they did their own stunts!
