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.
One of the most unique things about the RCMP is that they serve very remote, northern communities. This sets them apart from any other policing service in Canada. The remote experience is one that is all about commitment and extremes - extremes in temperatures, culture and working conditions. For some it's just a job, but for others, it becomes their way of life.
