Rookies - (S02E01)


Series revealing what it is like to be dropped into the front line of law enforcement, as seven ordinary people train to be police officers in Surrey. The new recruits venture out onto the streets under the watchful eye of an experienced veteran officer, coming face-to-face with the county's most violent criminals and learning to deal with a sometimes abusive public. This edition introduces the trainees, including 29-year-old Tyne, who has made a radical career move from dance instructor to trainee police officer. Angus is 19 - one of Surrey's youngest ever rookies - and is leaving his home in rural Somerset. While his school friends back home are still living for the weekend, Angus will have to grow up fast if he is to cope with a job that demands he makes life and death decisions. Shaven-headed 19-stone gym addict Antony might look like the archetypal cop, but underneath he is a serious idealist.
