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 »

Matlock Police
15 August 2008 | by See all my reviews

Yes I grew up watching this show religiously, in fact I even have written in my diary "watched Matlock Police" so it is immortalized forever in writing! Luckily I live in rural Australia and WIN is currently repeating this show (and another fantastic cop show Division 4)It is on at 2.30 am , but I don't care what time it is on, I am just glad it is! All the characters were wonderful, Grigor Taylor has to be one of the spunkiest blokes around, and I was upset when he left (no offence Tom Richards!) The episodes were always exciting, and they didn't need to be swearing every 5 minutes like people seem to be now on TV. All the old holden cars especially the monaro were super. A lot of my real favourite episodes I have kept so I have a few videos full of the show, excellent to watch whenever I like. They certainly don't make shows like that anymore, and the theme song was very catchy too.
