‘The Persuaders’ coming to Blu-ray for 40th anniversary

Posted Filed under

Originally broadcast on ITV between 1970 and 1971, the show starred Tony Curtis (Some Like It Hot) and Roger Moore (The Spy Who Loved Me) as two millionaire playboys – one a self-made man who battled his way out of the New York slums and the other a peer of the realm, born into money – who are duped by a retired judge into righting wrongs.

Filmed on location at Pinewood and Monaco, the series featured scripts from Brian Clemens (The Avengers) and Terry Nation (Doctor Who).

The 8-disc Blu-ray set will be released on Monday 19th September, featuring HD restorations of all 24 episodes.
