The Games (Australia)
ABC (AU),

1998

| Comedy

The Games was an Australian satire based on the premise of a documentary film crew being given carte blanche access to film the fictional Sydney Organising Committee for the Olympic Games (SOCOG) as they go about their days planning and producing the Games themselves, dealing with one crisis after another: a 100 Metre track that isn't actually 100 metres long, a lacrosse facility the head of the IOC is set to tour in a week which has not yet been built, and so on. The series ran for two seasons, ending just one week before the Games themselves opened.


Blue Murder (AU)

ROGER ROGERSON was headed for the top. He was the golden haired boy. He received more citations and made more arrests than any other officer on the force. To earn a reputation like that, you had to have your contacts on the inside. Sometimes, even cross the line. That's when the distinction between cop and criminal can blur. NEDDY SMITH, one of Australia's most notorious criminals found himself keeping company with the elite members of the police force. Overnight, a two-bit crim with a cruel streak became the kingpin of a crime and drugs syndicate. He had the green light. He was untouchable. MICHAEL DRURY was an honest cop in the wrong place at the wrong time. His crime was to turn down a bribe. The man who offered it to him was Roger Rogerson. To say Drury was surprised would be an understatement. But he thought it would end there... He was dead wrong.
