Courage In Red breaks new ground in the landscape of Canadian television. It goes where no other series on the force has gone before. Behind the headlines, clear of political spin and far beyond the official line to reveal, for the first time, the real RCMP.
Courage In Red is 13 half-hour character-driven episodes produced in both English and French. It is a documentary series dedicated to telling engaging personal stories, as well as providing the big picture. We give you the full range of RCMP operations - those the public knows about and those hidden from view - offering Canadians a viewing experience that is utterly fresh and unique.
Taking advantage of our unprecedented access, we show never-before-seen covert units, operations, and personnel. Using the latest in POV cameras that let us get unbelievably close, we take viewers right into the sights, sounds and emotions of the action. Whether it’s a “routine” domestic dispute, or a top-secret Emergency Response Team helicopter rappel, we take you there, right alongside the people making it happen.
Since 1885 every RCMP officer in Canada has gone through Depot in Regina, Saskatchewan. It is an incredibly grueling program that teaches respect, honor and discipline. Kevin Marion is 24 years old and will be going to Depot to realize his goal of becoming a Mountie. With hard work and a bit of luck, his father Al, a 28-year RCMP veteran will present him with his badge at the end of the 24-week program. But sometimes wanting it doesnt always mean you get it.
