aussie tv throwing their productions away, great! as i listen to the merrick and rosso [and kate ritchie] podcast nearly every day i noticed a damn fine tv-series about aussie crime in the 80ies 'underbelly a tale of the two cities'[correct me if i'm wrong, please bob!] as one of the radio announcers [kate ritchie that is] plays a minor role in it. so once the usual torrent/ rapidshare sites announced the second episode someone posted a link to the original channel nine homepage as it offers the whole first episode in great quality [avi, 1,39gb] for free.

i'm glad i do not have to wait for lame german tv-stations to get hold of this gem.

p.s.: i'm quite bemused as to my opinion the pictures shows the sydney skyline and the series takes place in melbourne [bob, might you help me?]

Nico, you have the title correct.
It is getting lots of media exposure here in Australia, and it is mostly being referred to just as "Underbelly".

You are also correct that the city silhouette shows the Sydney skyline. This is not really a mistake as the OTHER city referred to in the title is Sydney.

Chronologically, you can probably say it refers mainly to 70s crime.

TV ratings have been pretty good for the show, but I am yet to see it myself.
