The Cheekiness Factor

Often used in tv and films from the 70s, slang gives us the chance to enjoy cheeky terms of endearment, the lack of political correctness of the 70s gives us amusing yet abusive terms and the general attitudes of the time offer us engaging and enjoyable alternatives to our present day lives.

'Coppers' and 'cons' from the 70s provide a whole load of material to enjoy, explore and examine.  Video clips of tv programmes and films like Minder, The Sweeney, Starsky and Hutch, Kojak, and many, many more give us a great range of material from both sides of The Atlantic.

Watch some of these clips and enjoy the cheekiness factor, the slang and the political incorrectness of them all:
