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.
The Emergency Response Team is a group of highly-trained RCMP members capable of employing specialized weapons, equipment, and tactics to resolve extremely high-risk situations. For the first time cameras have been allowed to record some of these tactical procedures and scenarios. From boarding vessels in the Pacific Ocean at high speeds to rescue operations for a hostage in a remote part of Manitoba, this is a glimpse into what ERT does on a daily basis.
