Follow That Dog (ITV 1974, Norman Rossington, Patsy Rowlands)

Children’s sitcom Follow That Dog followed blundering P.C. Fogg is able to solve his cases with the help of ‘telepathic’ dog.

P.C. Fogg keeps a veritable menagerie in his police station and even has a mouse in his helmet. The sleepy village he lives in is something of a crime-free zone but his angry chief wants to see some improvement in the crime figures so he sends no-nonsense female police sergeant Sgt Bryant to stir things up.

When a major crime wave breaks out Fogg discovers that his dog Parry is able to transmit the solution whilst they are both asleep.

In real life the dog was a Basset Hound called Parthenon Parry and was a regular on TV and commercials throughout the seventies.
