Cameraman Alan D. Arnold was renowned for his nerves of steel and surefootedness. To get a dramatic shot, he would walk on girders or lie on the roadway while a car sped past inches from his face. A scene from episode 12, 'The Decimal Point', called for a hut to be burnt down, and the camera filmed the action from inside the burning hut. The cameraman stayed in that hut, with the camera churning away, for what seemed like ages and then, seconds after the crew scrambled out through the flame-licked door, the whole thing collapsed.

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.
