When Austrian friend of main character (Polish journalist Maj) has been killed, he discovers that her dead had something to do with big international organization founded by some nazists, facists and other monsters, who seems to be hidden in Western Europe and South America behind every corner. Since this moment brave Maj is trying to find these people and is also helping to many leftist groups and serious politics from the entire world to defeat dictators and establish new democra... socialistic system etc. Well, as he comes from the socialistic country, he is simply perfect for this. Here thanks to the modern and friendly party we don't have such (any!) problems... "Make love not war" under the care of the Warsaw Pact!
One of the biggest flops in the history of our TV, journalist Maj became the theme of jokes at the time of first broadcast AFAIK.
However today classic for many. I recommend it to all fans of the James Bond parodies - Leslie Nielsen is good for kids, next to this. :D

Thanks. :)

The captures appear to be from a recent television showing, so I suppose that it's now enjoyed ironically as an example of communist propaganda and/or seventies kitsch.

Indeed is worth to watch because of both. :D Especially that since mid 50's we didn't have many movies/series full of such obvious and nonsubtle political propaganda (of course times and the ideals has changed... a bit) - that's probably also a reason why it irritated people so much in 1979.

The series is complete.
Some chases, but nothing extraordinary:
Ep. 3 - BMW 2000 CS vs... Fiat Campagnola :D
Ep. 9 - PF 125p Sport vs. Opel Rekord and PF 130p
Plus some fast actions with 911, E-Type and Alfa GT Junior.

I've checked everything and there wasn't even a half of the K70 :( Maybe next time Ingo. ;)

@Weasel: the first pic of 9. is not from West Germany, it's Vienna, too. The "no parking/stopping"-sign in the background is not German. I even have a indifferent thought about the location... It looks a bit like the edge "Alserstrasse"/"Skodagasse" in Wien-Josefstadt (XIII.)

By the way: it's not a lamp, on the last pic of 6. :D

Yes, it is in Wien, the same place where the red tram is visible.

If it is not a lamp, then what it is? :D "She" is on the bar, I would say that this glass in her hand is a perfect place for the light bulb.

Is the majority of this actually filmed in Poland? I'm very surprised at the amount of Western cars I see.

A lot of scenes were faked in Poland and other eastern bloc countries. Weasel1984's first comment gives the details.

Ingo wrote The best example of the way, how to recognize the GDR-scenes of this series: all the Western cars are wrecks.
