America’s hero team goes into action.

The A-Team are a group of ex-United States Army special forces troops. They appeared in a television series of the same name which ran from 23rd January 1983 until 30th December 1986, with a total of 98 episodes.

There are four characters in The A-Team.

The leader is Colonel John “Hannibal” Smith (played by actor George Peppard).

Lieutenant Templeton “Faceman” Peck (played by Dirk Benedict) is a smooth-talkingconman. He’s referred to as “Face”.

The team’s pilot is Captain H.M. “Howling Mad” Murdock (played by Dwight Schultz). He has been declared insane and lives in a mental institution, but often comes out to help the team.

The team’s strong man and mechanic is Sergeant BA (Bad Attitude) Baracus, otherwise known as Mr T (from the actor’s real surname, Tureaud).

Every episode begins with this voiceover introduction: “Ten years ago, a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn’t commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the Los Angeles underground. Today, still wanted by the government, they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire... The A-Team.”
