Homicide was the turning point. From the very beginning it pulled ratings in the 30's, and they continued to grow, signalling that Australian production was not only viable but desirable. Homicide was made on one-tenth of the budget of an overseas programme, yet it consistently out-rated every one of them. It forced the stations into obtaining local productions because they attracted the ratings - a trend that is still followed today. See more »
One of the best Aussie police shows ever,along with division4 and matlock police. Unfortunately nothing ever released on DVD of all three shows.I have a few episodes on DVD that I have got from the TV and I love nothing more than watching these great Australian police shows.Along the way there has been a great number of actors used in these shows.A few of these actors have even gone on to Hollywood and made big names for them selves overseas, as well as local actors here that have even starred in other Australian made shows.The best part of watching these shows was trying to figure out where and which suburb in Melbourne it had been filmed at.
