Police Station
A dramatised account of a typical day at Gypsy Hill police station, a typical inner city 'nick'. Faced with rampant public indifference, cynicism and even outright hostility, the hard-pressed men of the uniform branch and the C.I.D. tackle burglaries, child abuse - and a serious assault on a police officer.
Thames Patrol

Eight Feet Tall
In the 1970s, The Mounted Branch of the Metropolitan Police was based at 22 stations in the capital, covering everything from ceremonial duties to crowd control. This rare film takes you behind the scenes to see how officers and their mounts were selected and trained.
Without Due Care
