Front Line, The (BBC-1 1984-1985, Paul Barber, Alan Igon)



Chalk and cheese sitcom The Front Line detailed the exploits of two West Indian half-brothers, one of whom is a policeman the other a Rasta.

Sheldon is a dreadlock-wearing Rastafarian who dislikes the establishment. Malcolm, on the other hand, sees himself as a “normal”, law-abiding young man. To the infuriation of his brother he is also a member of the police force.
