    The title was a single word, was the main character's nickname, and is also a shortened form of a very popular pet usually kept in a cage.

    You got it. The series was a kind of proto Minder, with Budgie, fresh out of prison, being led into various dodgy schemes by local small-time crook/businessman Charlie Endel. It was very popular when transmitted in the early 70s, and I would watch it each week.

    The first two were Barry Nelson in a TV production of Casino Royale in 1954 and Bob Holness in a 1956 radio production of Moonraker. I may be missing someone, but I am going to assume Bond 3 was a certain Sean Connery.

    Name the series that went through 2 iterations from the late 60s to just before The Sweeney, which actually replaced the series I am asking about. It's first iteration was as a largely studio bound drama, but in its second it became more action oriented and was shot on film by the same company that made The Sweeney.

    Nope, not Z Cars. This was an ITV series, based on an actual part of the police. It was canceled in favour of making its successor, The Sweeney. The first 2 series were made in 1969 and 1970, while series 3 and 4 were made in 1973 and 1974. One star of the 1973/74 series was the late George Sewell.
