The Champions

Show Summary

Welcome to The Champions guide at "Craig Sterling, Sharron Macready and Richard Barrett… These are the Champions. "Endowed with the qualities and skills of superhumans - qualities and skills, both physical and mental, to the peak of human performance. Gifts given to them by an unknown race of people, when their 'plane crashed near a lost civilisation in Tibet. Now, with their secrets known only to them, they are able to use their fantastic powers to their best advantage… as the Champions of law, order and justice. Operators of the international agency, Nemesis!" The Champions was the first production from the team of Dennis Spooner and Monty Berman. Their company Scoton made the series for ITC in 1967 and established the format for many future ITC productions of casting three actors as the heroes.

  • Since I was 12 years old... way back in 1969, I have loved this show. It was great then and is great now.

    Great show. Three stunning and brilliant young actors a great plot with high ethical standards and production values. It also made me laugh. The two handsome and adventurous men accompanied by possibly the most beautiful woman of her generation fight the baddies and with the aid of superpowers given them by a lost tibetan tribe strive to maintian world peace and justice. Still being repeated nearly 40 years after it was first broadcast. Just the best ever. Craig Sterling,Richard Barrett and Sharron McCready face challenges as varied as the austrailian out back to the arctic wastes. Great fun to watch now an dspot the guest actors who have become famous since. Also how many of the fine old actors have died.moreless
  • A recent discovery since I was too young the first time around!

    I've been watching this series for a few months now, as it is being shown on Freeview ITV4. My husband introduced me to the series, as he used to watch it when he was younger. The storylines are well-written and the main characters have good chemistry. It has that wonderful charm of its era, which is sadly lost in many of the programs which are made today. I feel that it has aged very well and still has something to say to a new generation of viewers. What I particularly like is the more subtle use of the characters' super-powers, rather than the gung-ho tactics featured in some superhero type series.moreless
  • The champions from the very first episode we learn where they get their supernatural powers & how they have to learn to use these gifts for the benefit of mankind & save the planet many times over in the swinging sixties & of course they never failmoreless

    The Champions my most favorit programme from my childhood it seemed to me to have everything action,humour & no soppy romance,from the opening episode were they crash in the mountains & snow to many exotic places (although they never left the uk) all three characters was fantastic the hansome craig & rather cute richard & the stunning sharon combined with their magnifecent supernatural powers they managed to save the world many times over,& although its now over 40years old i think its still a great show get the dvd & enjoymoreless
  • The Champions - Superb.

    There were many unusual things about 'The Champions', not least that it was one of the rare shows to be cancelled before it had even been screened. Filmed in 1967, but not broadcast until 1969 in the United Kingdom (it was sold to the rest of the world first), this fantasy series about secret agents with superpowers anticipated such telefantasies as 'The Six Million Dollar Man'. Heroes Craig (Stuart Damon), Sharron (Alexandra Bastedo) and Richard (William Gaunt) had had their senses (and psychic powers) mysteriously enhanced by a kindly Tibetan mystic (played superbly by Felix Aylmer) after their plane crashed. The show is a fine example of what Gaunt calls 'The white Jaguar' school of British TV. The same white Jag, usually hurtling down a lonely road towards a cliff, appeared in (among others) 'The Champions' and 'Randall And Hopkirk (Deceased) and 'Danger Man'. ITC accountants couldn't see why, if a character had to die, they couldn't save everyone money and effort by getting in the same car to set out on the same deadly ride.

  • The Champions: Classic in my childhood and classic in my life!!!

    The Champions:

    Waiting in front of tv every afternoon to see a new episode of this great tv show. Imagining myself being Craig Sterling doing my agent tasks, of course, using my superpowers.

    I still admiring this show, hearing the special noise effects for the superpowers and enjoying the intial trailer and the music also, what is one of my favorites TV themes songs.

    The only thing that I am dissapointed about: Why no more episodes? Why only a few of them? I hope that a smart movie producer can place in a cinema screens the marevelous characters of the champions agents..
