Series 1: A fly-on-the-wall documentary series about an elite police unit's bid to snare one of Britain's most powerful crime lords. But things are not quite what they seem... Operation Good Guys is in fact an innovative and irreverent comedy. Blurring the line between fact and fiction, it witnesses, on camera, the total breakdown, professionally and personally, of the Operation Good Guys team. Throughout the operation, The 'Good Guys' have an unfortunate habit of embroiling into their calamitous world some of the country's best-known celebrities, from actors and footballers, to TV presenters and even the odd ex-convict. Series 2: The first series won the Silver Rose for Best Sitcom and the Prix de la presse at Montreux 1998. Now DI Beach and the team are docu-soap stars, the police have no choice but to reunite them. Barry Couch, the constabulary's newly appointed razor-sharp PR consultant, organises a number of "controlled" showcase operations, from traffic calming in Camberwell to perfume scams on the Costa Del Sol, to prove the previous operation as a one-off failure. But with BBC producer Clive Tollack looking to manipulate every situation for television effect and Barry Couch trying to stop him, and with the Good Guys only beginning to come to terms with the pressures of their newfound celebrity, one thing is for sure - nothing will go to plan. Series 3: The hilarious spoof-docu-soap - set in a disaster-prone police station - returns. As the BBC commissions ever-more unrealistic scenarios, DI Beach and his colleagues find themselves dressed as women; giving road-safety classes to schoolchildren; investigating corruption in boxing; and generally misunderstanding the brief.

Operation Good Guys doesn't try to make you think in a certain way. It doesn't politicise anything. Best of all large chunks of it are improvised on the spot.
A group of highly incompetent London cops are followed around by a TV crew as they subtly, sometimes not so subtly, MOCK political correctness, nepotism, clichés, hypocrisy, snobbery, control freakery, rubbish documentaries, reality TV and plenty more.
Which pretty much means it will never be broadcast in unedited form on UK TV ever again.
