Synopsis:
An early hit for ATV, this absorbing, rigorously researched and very human drama series centres on the work of a team of probation officers based in London, and the lives of the men and women of all ages and backgrounds who come under their care. Drawing on the documentary skills of creator Julian Bond and produced by 'Emergency - Ward 10's' Antony Kearey, 'Probation Officer' was broadcast at a time when the service was increasingly coming into focus as a progressive response to rising crime. Future Doomwatch lead John Paul stars as newcomer Philip Main, alongside The Avengers' Honor Blackman as female officer Iris Cope and seasoned character actor David Davies as department head Jim Blake.
Guests include Alfred Burke, Susan Hampshire, Charles Lloyd Pack, Richard Vernon and Peter Vaughan - while Earl Cameron and Lloyd Reckord star in a blistering tale of racism and intolerance which features one of the earliest interracial kisses ever broadcast on British television. 'Probation Officer' does not exist complete in the archive - this volume contains the twelve earliest surviving episodes from series one.
