accurate
30 July 2001 | by (Bremen (by way of Melbourne, Australia)) – See all my reviews

It says a lot about the accuracy of information in this series that it was not shown on TV in New South Wales (the Australian state where the action takes place) during the trials and inquiries (including a Royal Commission into corruption in the NSW police force) involving the main 'characters'. The story is just astounding.... hard to believe these were the daily activities of the NSW police. Excellent acting throughout, including that of Alex Dimitriades, which convinced me that he is not just the pretty boy of 'Heartbreak High'. It really was compulsive viewing for me when it was first screened.
