Trivia

The fate of Homicide hung in the balance initially. In late 1964 the series was only being screened in Melbourne and on some country stations, and its continuation would depend on its acceptance interstate. In early 1965 Homicide went national, screening in Sydney, Brisbane and Adelaide. Hector Crawford said "The interstate reaction to the show has been most pleasing, particularly in Sydney. It has gone down very well there." (Welcome news indeed, considering Sydney's traditional hostility towards programmes originating from Melbourne). In May 1965, Seven signed for another 13 episodes of the series, bringing the total to 39, and Homicide's future was assured. See more »

Seminal Australian cop show
6 January 2003 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

The show that spawned an entire series of Australian TV cops shows (Division 4, Matlock, Bluey) Homicide premiered as a black and white show filmed on flimsy sets with very little location filming and ended its days as a colour presentation with extensive location shooting. Just about every Australian actor of any note in the 70s and 80s got a start on Homicide.
