The best No Hiding Place was earlier from 1958-59. in full B & W glory with a Wolsley in the opening credits. Later episodes, to 1967, lacked the earlier 'magic'.  Z Cars was a real change in TV police drama from 1962 ;)

I did once read somewhere that the "Z" cars in the series were actually yellow as this showed up on screen more as white than a white car would have.

I found out today that the reason for parking it up was due to a failed coil pack. It seems nobody was prepared to remove the original coil pack to identify which coil pack was needed  ???

I know .... I used to have an Omega & have changed one ;) but there was a choice of 3(?), and Vx couldn't tell you which one until you'd put the old coil pack on their parts counter.
