Premiering June 26, 1981, over Australia's Ten Network, the gritty detective series Bellamy zeroed in on a special crime squad in a big city. The title character, played by John Stanton, was dedicated to his work, but was known to bend rules and tweak the noses of the powerful to get results. The program content was pretty rough, even for its time; in one particularly graphic story line, Bellamy went after a serial killer who preyed on female massage-parlor employees. Produced by Grundy Television, Bellamy lasted 26 one-hour-long episodes, some of which have been packaged on video as "feature films."
