Trailer released for upcoming DVD and Blu-Ray remasters



Hi and welcome to the site dedicated to the brilliant, controversial, fast-paced, infamous, hard-hitting, all-action, explosive, long-running cult British crime-action-drama The Professionals. (Phew!)

The aim of the site is to provide the 'ultimate', most comprehensive online reference source for the show. To that end I remain deeply indebted to many of the show's fans and those directly connected with the show for the vast quantities of information I have received!

The views expressed here are independent and not necessarily shared by London Weekend Television, Mark 1 Productions or David Wickes Television. However Mark 1's joint directors Brian Clemens and Laurie Johnson have kindly taken notice and given the site their seal of approval hence the "Authorised" tag! I remain deeply indebted to Brian and Laurie's "archivist" and fellow fan, Dave Rogers!
