Trivia

After making the pilot episode, it took the best part of a year for Hector Crawford to sell the programme - a Nine Network executive rejected it because he thought the opposition would kill it with a 'Cowboys and Indians' show. The stations were not interested in local drama production, and it was only Hector's unrelenting persistence that caused HSV-7 to finally shut him up and purchase 13 episodes of the show. Seven probably thought it would fail, and they certainly never dreamed that it would become such a huge success. See more »

Seminal Australian cop show
6 January 2003 | by See 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.
