 A little research tells me that #10 is "Minder".  In the fifteen seasons that it ran, each season was only two to three months long, so it was much like a mini-series that we get on the premium cable networks now.  I am not familiar with the series.  I got this information by googling a few key words.

Google is perfectly acceptable.  That just leaves #6.

I believe that #6 is "Jason King", which was a spinoff of a show called "Department S".  Again, I found the information by using google.  If this show was ever shown in the United States, then I must have missed it.

You are correct, and they are all show that I've watched at some point.  Anyway, I hope people enjoyed the quiz.  Cinemaman  has the most answers, so the thread is theirs.

Thanks to Lavenderblue19, MilesArcher, and Cinemaman for participating!

Very good, everyone.  Thanks to Princess, Peebs, and Lavender.  We have them all now.  If you have some of the retro TV 

channels, then you know that some of these shows are still shown today,  Princess got most of them, so she gets to post 

the next question.
