Trivia

Critics, accustomed to a diet of American product, were adamant that Australia could not produce a quality drama series, and if one were produced the public would not accept it. Hector Crawford, head of Crawford Productions, thought differently, and kept pushing for an Australian police show. The Homicide concept was born, and the only way to make a pilot episode was for Hector to totally fund it himself, which he did - even to the extent of mortgaging his house. See more »

Seminal Australian cop show
6 January 2003 | by taipan-1See all my reviews

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.
