    I highly recommend this drama about the crew of Australian Warship HMAS Hammersley. I found it by accident while keeping watch for advance releases of new US shows. So far there's 7 episodes broadcast.

    It's doing very well in the ratings in Australia -- debuting with the second highest ratings ever for an Australian drama, and holding #1 in its timeslot for every episode so far. It's already been given a green light for a second season.

    It is the story of ordinary heroes doing an extraordinary job, the men and women of the Royal Australian Navy Patrol Boat Service, who battle the elements and the odds to defend Australia's borders and enforce its economic zone. Hal McElroy, producer of Water Rats and Blue Heelers, is one of the driving forces behind Sea Patrol, to screen on the Nine Network. A second series has been commissioned.
