In the movie, Brannigan is sent on a fish-out-of-water journey to England to pick up a bail-jumping thug (John Vernon, Animal House) for extradition. But to the chagrin of Scotland Yard (represented by The Great Escape‘s Richard Attenborough), the mobster is abruptly kidnapped from under their noses, and Brannigan has to join forces with a whole different breed of cops—including Judy Geeson (Man in a Suitcase) as a fetching if no-nonsense Detective-Sergeant—to track him down…all over a gorgeous 1970s-era London.

The sad passing of actress Alexandra Bastedo earlier this month saw many recalling and celebrating her work on '60s spy-fi series The Champions - just one entry in the canon of cult programme makers Itc Entertainment.
Though it also branched out into film production - with the likes of 1976's The Eagle Has Landed and 1982's The Dark Crystal - Itc was best known throughout the 1960s and '70s for its raft of cult TV programming, with shows like The Champions making an indelible screen icon of Bastedo and others like her.
This week, the Week in Geek is looking to redress the balance with a fond tribute to Itc Entertainment - one of the UK's very best, most influential production teams.
