About the program

An Australian documentary series similar to the American series Cops, The Force: Behind the Line airs on Seven Network. The show has been broadcast since 2006, and its most recent twelfth series premiered on July 27, 2016. It is an in-house Seven Network production, with Dan Meenan serving as the executive producer, and Simon Reeve as the veteran presenter.

The show follows members of Western Australia Police and new South Wales Police as they serve their country and its people. There is a succession of three or four cases followed in each half-hour episode, with wireless microphones utilized for audio recordings, and some of the filming done from a distance so as not to interfere with police work. A range of criminal activities is explored, but not beyond the events that the police deals with due to the nature of the show. From domestic disputes, car accidents and bomb threats to missing people, petrol spills and drug operations, there is a good mix of issues in each gritty episode.

The early series of The Force: Behind the Line have been very highly rated, but the more recent installments were not as successful. It has a reasonable 6.7/10 IMDb score, and is a long-running staple of Australian television, reaching highs of approximately 2 million viewers. Series 12 debuted with an audience of 0.684 million viewers. No announcements have been made by Seven regarding a potential renewal, but the program seems to be popular enough to warrant more series to come. Please stay tuned and we will let you know when a decision is made.
