Corruption in the Land of Oz

Faultlessly researched, this gripping true story of police corruption is an engrossing TV experience. I was only able to see this miniseries this year as the trials of the real-life people were still continuing in New South Wales. It gives the real view of police culture in N.S.W. as it was in the 1980's (and still is now, as shown in a recent 4 Corners episode- "tackle" is police code for a small skim or bribe): the mateship with criminals; the shakedowns; the endless drinking sessions etc. Richard Roxburgh is amazing as Det. Roger Rogerson - so amazing that Rogerson himself remarked on the accuracy of his portrayal! He is played as matey and charming.. until crossed, whereas Tony Martin as the criminal Neddy Smith is frightening. This series stands up alongside the film "Chopper" & the series "Scales of Justice" as landmark Australian Noir.
