The Protectors

Premise and Interesting Notes: Of all Gerry Anderson's work, The Protectors remains the most out of character. The show was a prosaic action adventure series without any of the fantasy and charm of his earlier or later work. It is also the only T.V . series that Gerry Anderson did not create.

The lead roles were Robert Vaughn (Harry Rule) of The Man from U.N.C.L.E. fame and Nyree Dawn Porter (The Contessa di Contini, the former Lady Caroline Fitztempest Ogilvie) (most famous for her role in the British mini series, Th e Forsythe Saga. In New Zealand, the show was given an extra boost because Nyree Dawn Porter was a Kiwi. The third continuing character was Paul Buchet, played by Tony Anholt who later went took a major role in Space 1999. Together the form a loose alliance called th e Protectors who hire their detective/crimefighting services to anyone who can afford them.

The Theme song, Avenues and Alleyways,(written by Mitch Murray and Peter Callender) was sung by Tony Christie and recorded on MCA Records. It was quite popular on it's release making its way up the pop charts. The incidental music was composed by J ohn Cameron.
