The other evening I tuned on to the Alibi channel and discovered a television series called WPC 56. It originally aired on the BBC in 2013 and is about the first woman police constable who joins the Brinford police force in 1956. The series focuses on Gina, who has to deal with sexism of the time and gain acceptance by the male officers at the station. Have you seen it? What do you think?

That sounds like something I would be interested in watching, though I doubt I will considering I don't have access to the BBC.

It has had limited international release, so hopefully it will get to Australia in the future.
I have not heard of this, and do not think it is in Australia though I do not watch Foxtel, so I could well be wrong!

No, but it sounds right up my alley so I will watch it if I can get hold of it.
I don't know, but it might be possible to stream. You could always see if YouTube has a few clips. Hopefully it will get released in Australia.
I really enjoyed watching the show, although I have only seen 3 of the 15 episodes. It really helps you understand the kind of attitudes women had to deal with in the 50s. Sometimes I found it hard not to want to yank the men out of the television and punch them in the face.
Nope, as not screening at a TV station near me!
