Prior to the introduction of television, Crawfords were a prolific producer of radio programmes, and Homicide owes its existence to a radio predecessor, D24, which ran for 10 years. D24 (and the later CIB) was produced with the co-operation of the Victoria Police, and this same co-operation was extended to Homicide. Most Homicide episodes were based on actual case files, and 'props' such as police cars and even actual police as 'extras' were loaned. Scripts were vetted by a police advisor to ensure accuracy. A police spokesman said at the time: "By helping the producers, the police are helping themselves. Convincing the public that a policeman can be as human and understanding as the next fellow is a hard message to get across. This TV series should lift our image to undreamed of heights." See more »
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.
