Trivia

The helicopter seen in the opening credits was a real police helicopter at the time the show was produced. It was an Aerospatiale SA.365C1 Dauphin 2 that belonged to Victoria Police from 1979 and was decommissioned in 2001. It's dramatic, high-performance takeoff was achieved by having only the pilot on board, making it nose-heavy and light. The pilot was a real police pilot. The helicopter, registered VH-PVF, was stripped of valuable parts and in 2013 is in New South Wales where it is being restored by a private owner for static display. See more »

Professionals Down Under
15 August 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Enjoyable series that never made the prime time in the UK. Anyone viewing it and familiar with The Professionals would soon spot the similarities.

Grizzled older authority figure sending the younger guys out to do the legwork. Another carry-over was the use of Ford vehicles (did the producers have a deal?). Bodie & Doyle had their boy-racer Escorts and Capris. The Special Squad had their Falcons - looking to British eyes like a Granada (though actually a somewhat different vehicle I found out later, superficial similarities only).

It seems to me (thinking back 20 years!) that the credits listed Professionals producers Brian Clemens and Albert Fennell but IMDb.com does not mention this, maybe I'm mistaken.
