    Note from Barney Rosenzweig 

    The Cagney & Lacey “bible” was, for the most part, written by others. Contributing writers were from our various staffs, assistants and associate producers who could all claim some of its authorship. For the most part, it was used during the time of our being in production, as a tool for free lance writers … so as to familiarize these professionals with important background information with which they might not otherwise be familiar.

    It is pretty straight forward material and there are no scores here for style points. 

    A side note with respect to individual episodes herein synopsized, these are not necessarily listed in the order they were filmed or exhibited, but rather (in some cases) in the order the scripts were commissioned.
