That's because the show has never been released on DVD or been re-screened due to the fact that very few of the episodes are archived.

As for ratings I'd assume that they would be three or four stars due to the fact that they are the main police vehicles used in the series.

Believe it or not, back in the 1960s and 1970s the BBC re-recorded over the master tapes of old programmes, which were not regarded as worth anything, to save the cost of new tapes.

I'm reading the book titled "Winds of destruction" - memoir of Rhodesian fighter pilot.
Quote:"To distinguish between gunships, Rhodesian troopers and SAAF troopers, abbreviations were introduced. Influenced by a popular British Police TV series then showing in Salisbury and entitled ‘Z Cars’, the helicopters became:
K‑Car (Kay)–gunship (killer)‑cum‑command post
G‑Car (Gee)–trooping and general purpose–Rhodesian
Z‑Car (Zed)–trooping and general purpose–SAAF".

Added a selection of extant Z Cars episodes spanning 1962-1969. Planning to add the 1970s segments in the near future as well. Some backgrounds were omitted due to quality issues.

@Yanamation - The episode numbers do not seem to match what IMDB and Wikipedia list

@Nightrider: That Rhodesian fighter pilot you speak of is the late Cpt Peter Petter-Bowyer. Never personally met, but Ive heard many a mentions about him and the like
