Trivia

Among the early titles considered for the series were "Saints and Sinners", which would have been appropriate for the St. Kilda setting of its early development, and "Police File", a title first used after the concept was changed, which Crawford Productions weren't happy with. In their search for another name, one of the titles suggested was "Department 24", a throwback to the successful Crawfords radio serial "D24", which had evolved into the television series Homicide (1964). A secretary preparing a list from the suggestions mistyped "Department 24" as "Division 4", a title that struck a chord when the list was presented, and was subsequently adopted as the title for the new series.

Please have a DVD release

I love Division 4. I used to watch it as a child / teenager. It is a classic Australian television show that was packed with adventure and a very good story line. It preceded shows like Cop Shop and Prisoner. These shows well prisoner is available on DVD in full. I would buy every program if it was available on DVD. Someone should encourage Crawfords or whoever has the rights to sell it on DVD. I think there are a lot of people out there who would gladly pay to own their copy. I tried sending an email once but I got no response. Its a shame not being able to see it any more. We don't get it at all in Sydney late night or otherwise.
