Gold Coast Cops
Thursday, 7.30pm, One
This well-made, character-based factual series premieres on this rather blokey channel. From production company Eyeworks, who has also given us Territory Cops, Kalgoorlie Cops and the brilliant, eye-opening Kings Cross: ER, the 10parter follows the work of the Gold Coast’s handpicked police taskforce known as the Rapid Action and Patrols group. Originally formed in response to the infamous Broadbeach bikie brawl in September 2013, the group now tackles everything from street violence to organised crime. Tonight there are homemade explosives hidden in a Hell’s Angel’s car and a stolen vehicle triggers a police chopper-led car chase.
