CANADIAN MOUNTED POLICE
Syndicated (30 min.)
R.C.M.P. was a
Canadian television drama series about the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. The
series ran a single season (1959-60), consisting of 39 weekly half-hour
episodes and starred French-Canadian actor Gilles Pelletier as Corporal Jacques
Gagnier and English-Canadian actor Don Francks as Constable Bill Mitchell.
The series was created by Canadian film-maker Frank Radford
"Budge" Crawley in collaboration with Crawley Films, the Canadian
Broadcasting Corporation, the BBC in the United Kingdom and Australian
Unapologetically cold, grainy and raw, the show was very realistic and
stood up well against other crime dramas on TV of the day. Crawley created the R.C.M.P.
series in an attempt to fulfill his dream of sharing "the Canadian
Way" with the rest of the world. While not a fan of American-style cinema,
Crawley wished R.C.M.P. to sign with a U.S. television network. American
networks at that time demanded full control over any shows they broadcast and R.C.M.P.
ended up with only a paltry take in American syndication.
