1959 a.k.a. Softly, Softly is a British television drama series, produced by the BBC and screened on BBC 1 from January 1966. It centred on the work of regional police crime squads, plain-clothes CID officers based in the fictional region of Wyvern, supposedly in the Bristol area of England. The series took its name from the proverb 'softly, softly, catchee monkey', the motto of Lancashire Constabulary Training School, and was designed as a vehicle for Detective Chief Inspector Charles Barlow and Detective Inspector John Watt from the police series Z-Cars, which had just finished its original run. Joining them in the early series was Robert Keegan as Blackitt, the police station sergeant from Z-Cars, now retired and acting as a freelance helper. The series introduced characters like Sgt Harry Hawkins who would become very popular and well known. Promoted to Detective Chief Inspector, Hawkins stayed with the show for its entire run.
