    Minder was one of my favorite shows when I was a kid.
    Always looking out for a "nice little earner", probably a few Arthurs on this forum.

    George Cole was a British institution, portraying the kind of cockney,wide boy spivs we all seem to have such a soft spot for. Prior to Arthur Daley he played a great part as "Flash Harry" in the old St.Trinian films.....RIP George
