Trivia

Series produced using innovative method of shooting all footage on 16mm film, which was then transferred straight to Quadruplex videotape for the footage to be edited electronically. No film was edited. A previous show shot on film, Lucy Moves to NBC (1980), was also transferred to video for electronic editing, though that featured three film camera running continuously in a studio, with the three different images later merged in editing. "Bellamy" was different in that it utilised a single-camera filming style with multiple set-ups and retakes. See more »

Bellamy
28 February 2006 | by rosalyn_connorsSee all my reviews

Bellamy's niece was played by Jacqui Gordon in the episode 'My Fav'rit Policeman'. Jacqui had previously appeared in the Crawford produced series 'Young Ramsay' in the episode 'Hopalong Two'(1979). After 'Bellamy', she popped up again in the soap 'Prisoner' (circa 1984), produced by Grundy Organization and guested in 'The Flying Doctors'.

'Bellamy' was broadcast in the UK in 1984, though as far as I am aware, it was only shown in the London TV region by London Weekend Television. However, the pilot - 'Massage Girl Murders' did do the rounds in some other areas of the UK in the early 1990's.

An uncompromising Australian police series that pulled quite a few punches, being fairly violent at times. Good use of Sydney locations and acceptable performances from the main cast including John Stanton as Steve Bellamy and Tim Elston as his sidekick Mitchell. The regular background characters could have done with a bit more fleshing out, but overall it was entertaining stuff and groomed us for the next offering from Australia - 'Special Squad' (Crawford Productions, 1984).
