Set in Melbourne CIB it starred Robert Bruning as Inspector Dallas Buchanan and Sandy Harbutt as Detective Constable Kim Riverton, plus Barbara Mason (pictured at left) and Lyndal Moor as a cop’s widow and daughter, whose deceased husband had been a colleague of Buchanan’s.
Sergeant Ted Driscoll, a regular support role played by Ken Goodlet, represented the uniform branch.
Inspector Mike Hammond (Tony Ward) was Buchanan’s counterpart in the New South Wales police and appeared whenever the action moved to Sydney.
The series received a degree of criticism because of the violence shown – a point of much discussion given the 7.30 pm broadcast timeslot.
