Running from the mid-80s until the early 90s this action adventure television series was a popular one. It featured Richard Dean Anderson in the lead role as Angus MacGyver, a former government secret agent who prefers to use his brains rather than his brawn to get out of dangerous situations. A man who won’t carry a gun, MacGyver works for the Phoenix Foundation in the city of Los Angeles. MacGyver is a scientist with expertise in bomb diffusal from his time in Vietnam. He is a man who can get out of any sticky situation with a gum wrapper, a paper clip and, his favourtie, duct tape.
