This fast-paced British reality series shows the daily lives of officers patrolling the roadways of England. With high-speed chases, drug busts, and hardcore criminals abound, you'll feel like your heart is on a motorway.
High Court Enforcement Officers, who have been known as Sheriffs since Saxon times, have higher powers than bailiffs and can force people who refuse to pay judgements to do so, or seize goods of equivalent value for a £60 fee.
British reality series presented by Ant and Dec in which 12 celebrities are abandoned in the Australian jungle. In order to earn food, they must perform Bushtucker Trials which challenge them physically and mentally.
You might think this is all about cops racing around in a menagerie of hot Japanese rally cars. If you're looking for high octane, high pitch commentary over endlessly repeated 60 second clips forget it. This is good, measured documentary making.
The fly-on-the-wall style follows the exploits of an Essex traffic cop team, this show mixes that feel-good detail on how the police go about their business with allowing characters to come through. Segments vary from following full operations from start to finish to those random moments where the police demonstrate the better side of judgement. Everything from routine traffic stops to drugs-busts to changing helicopter engines(!)
Over the top of this is Chris Fox's measured commentary. And unlike quite a few other shows he seems to know when to let the on-screen action speak for itself.
