From the VHS age: One-third of an EQUALIZER 3-tape boxset, issued in the UK by Universal-Playback during the dying days of the tape format.  

I've always thought this one-time ITV mainstay (partly because of the CALLAN connection) was one of the best of the 1980s adventure shows, breaking free of the production line nature of Universal's west Coast TV factory by making New York much more than a location... it was an essential character.  Indeed, maybe even more so than Robert McCall himself thanks to Woodward's extended absence from the latter seasons after suffering a heart attack during the filming of swanky international Cold War pot boiler CODENAME: KYRIL in July 1987.
