Alouette in The Avengers
The Avengers (1961-9) - this TV spy-fi adventure show, about British agent John Steed, featured helicopters in several later episodes.

In season four, What The Butler Saw has a Brantly B-2B that flies an RAF chap to a country estate. In season six episode Murdersville, there's a Sud Aviation SE-3130 Alouette II.

In the final season's episode, Split!, there is a Hughes 269B in an early scene.

The same helicopter also shows up in the first sequence of Super Secret Cypher Snatch, where it hovers above two men who are fighting in a field, before it flies away when the winner of a shoot-out fires his revolver at the chopper.
