Multi-award winning 80s television series Cagney & Lacey, starring Sharon Gless and Tyne Daly, was often the highest-rated television drama on both sides of the Atlantic. It explored the professional and private lives of "two women who happen to be cops, not two cops who happen to be women" with such emotional honesty that, some 30 years later, fans are still claiming it changed their lives. It also changed television history when a letter-writing campaign succeeded in reversing the show's cancellation. Illustrated with clips from the show, Sharon Gless (Cagney), Tyne Daly (Lacey), and Barney Rosenzweig, the show's executive producer, take part in a panel discussion examining how this iconic series changed representations of women, and influenced subsequent television history.


We are delighted to announce that Sharon Gless, Tyne Daly, and Barney Rosenzweig will be joined on stage for this event by host Dame Jenni Murray.
