Classic Clip: The Sweeney in action

A real gem this time - The Sweeney in action, packing in more action in three minutes that most of today's shows get in an hour.

Check out a superb car chase featuring an old school villain's Jaguar and a Ford Granada, notice that Regan and Carter's driver is a bloke last seen as a big time villain in Eastenders and that one of the villains is Benny from Crossroads. And enjoy Carter's often-quoted classic final line.

Now go and buy The Sweeney DVD boxset. You'll not regret it.

Classic Clip: Wheeltappers and Shunters

Contrary to what you read today, the world wasn't swanning around in Biba frocks and driving Cinzano in the 70s - the average couple were more likely to be at the social club drinking cheap beer (and a port and lemon for the lady).

The Wheeltappers and Shunters Social Club
was a TV show that captured the northern social club at its height - bad acts, bad fashion, big hair and all the beer you could drink. Captured her is Kathy Kirby belting it out like a good 'un - but the real stars are the audience. Enjoy the 70s as it really was.

Classic Clip: Disco Dancing

Forget John Travolta, on the evidence of this clip, the real king of disco in the 70s is this old bloke in white slacks and matching polyester top.

If you want to learn how to disco dance like the master (and laugh at a load of pensioners giving it their all to a bad Euro disco track), you really need to watch this clip. And if you know any other great YouTube clips with a retro flavour let us know.
