    Does any one remember this brilliant series?
    The first time I saw it they only showed 4 episodes with subtitles but then they repeated it dubbed and showed the full series.
    It was one of the best foreign imports I have ever seen and the music by Ennio Morricone amongst others.
    The story was about an Italian police commissioner fight against the mafia and in the first four its consequences on his family and loved ones and after that the action picked up.
    It was shown late at night in the 80’s late at nigh and is a pity they do not as good a quality programs these days only to be filled with tat like BB.

    Has anyone seen it on DVD?
