Trivia

There was an initial discrepancy over the title of the library music used as the theme tune - the record from which it was obtained had "Project In Operation" as the title on its label, but "Industry On the Move" as the title on its cover. The website of the music's publisher, DeWolfe Music, concurs with the record label in titling the tune "Project In Operation". See more »

Australian TV at it's best
3 February 2011 | by nemo1962See all my reviews

I remember watching this show, loved it. And I loved the theme as well. Had a mad crush on Michael Pate. The stories were great, not so far fetched and it was always interesting to see the sentences meted out at the end. Watching it now is such a joyful trip, the classic cars, the fashions, the hair, the actors, spotting the towns where filming was. If you read the history on the show (www.classicaustraliantv.com/matlock.htm) Victoria Police introduced motorbike radios (it was a dummy prop on the show) and every kid wanted to be a motorcycle police like Gary Hogan. Does anyone remember Grigor Taylor in Silent Number? It's such a shame that Australian TV can't match this. Rush is alright, Special Ops is too, but this was great. I wish someone had the nous to release it all on DVD.
