Running for over 100 episodes, Probation Officer was an early hit for ATV and made a star out of John Paul, who would later go on to give such a memorable performance a decade later in Doomwatch. Created by Julian Bond, Probation Officer‘s semi-documentary format allowed it to remain topical throughout its four-year run. This set contains twelve episodes.
