Fellowship winners publish article on Crawfords and the Victorian Police

Dean Brandum and Andrew Nette have published a terrific article called Police Fictions in the latest edition of Overland magazine. The article looks at the creation of Crawford Productions police dramas Homicide, Division 4, Matlock Police and how their creation and writing had very strong ties to the Victorian Police department.

Both Brandum and Nette were winners of the 2014 AFIRC Research Fellowship (with Kirsten Stevens), an award given to promote research that utilises the holdings of the AFI Research Collection.

In their research Brandum and Nette found many items of use in the AFI Research Collection including notes from the police on issues like protocol and uniforms, and extensively researched clippings files on true crimes.
