Series Description: "Robert Banks Stewart created and produced, initially, this detective series set on the Channel Island of Jersey. Det. Sgt. Jim Bergerac (John Nettles) was the offshore policeman who often found himself caught up in the affairs of the super-rich in the isolated millionaire's community of Jersey. Also appearing were Terence Alexander, as Bergerac's former father-in-law Charlie Hungerford, and Cecile Paoli, as one-time girlfriend Francine (later on in the series he retired from the force and shared his life with Danielle Aubry, played by Therese Liotard, between freelance detective adventures).

The theme music was composed by George Fenton." (British Television - An Illustrated Guide)
