Trivia

Getting to this point was no easy task. Upon the advent of television in Australia, Crawford Productions entered the field with quiz and game shows, including Wedding Day (1956), Video Village (1962) and Don't Argue. A 15-minute live-to-air sitcom, Take That (1957), was made in 1957, and Crawfords first ventures into drama were the 1960 play Seagulls Over Sorrento (1960) and the 1961-63 courtroom series Consider Your Verdict (1961). "We wanted to dump the quiz and game shows as quick as we could," said Ian Crawford. "We'd also produced live commercials in the studio to make a crust before we managed to get dramas going, and hated that of course. We were drama people, and nobody considered doing anything else."

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.
