THE BEAT

Anyone been watching this show? Show follows the VPD's BET (Beat Enforcement Team) as they patrol the Downtown Eastside.

Think COPS but better with less police chases and more human interest. Pretty good show. It's on CityTV at 9pm and 9:30pm on FRIDAYS.

I saw a couple episodes last weekend. Seems pretty interesting so far. One of the episodes I watched showed how pissed off the cops get when they bring somebody in and that person is back out on the street the next day. All that hard work for nothing it seems like.

well, you know that this series was filmed in 2008. so they had the option of airing the show BEFORE the olympics. but they didn't exactly because they didn't want the world to think that all of vancouver was like that.

but this show and its producers (some of which are/were cops) mean to show the struggles of the DTES and what the police have to do every shift and to hopefully encourage some change within the justice system as well as social services.

Is this just a propaganda show that the VPD has created for marketing? Or is this a serious show?

I would think it's both though I hesitate to call it "propaganda". I'm not quite sure what you think the VPD is accomplishing by being a part of this show but one of the goals of this show is, I think, to shed some light on the Downtown Eastside, the hard work that goes into policing it, the much needed help from society that the neighbourhood needs, and the changes that need to happen with our legal system.

Sorry to bump this thread. I figured some of you would want to know that the show is back with new episodes. It's on right now on ch. 213 (shaw). Looks like it's going to be on this Saturday 9/15, same channel, at 10:30 PM.

Full episodes for season 2 are here

The Beat - Watch TV online free - Full episodes & shows on the Citytv Video Portal

They used to have full episodes from season 1 on there too, guess they took them down.

FYI, if you guys have a HOSTS file that blocks ads, the videos may not load on that site.

I had to disable my HOSTS file before being able to watch them.

Like someone posted above, I get a weird stink of propaganda in this show, it's a good show, but it just feels fabricated and a PR thing for the VPD.

Which part of the show do you feel is fabricated?

If it was really a setup by the VPD to bolster their image, why of all places would they choose the DT eastside? There are other, easier sectors in the city to show "fake" police work.

They had an episode where they couldn't locate a missing man last year during Christmas. If it was VPD showboating, they would've shown the VPD blowing the case wide open and finding the guy. They didn't, and that guy is still missing.

Further for the sake of argument, ask yourself this: Who films the show? Is it other VPD personnel? Who edits the show for broadcast?

Go watch the documentary Through A Blue Lens on Youtube. That was made I believe over 10 years ago with Sgt. Hinton. This guy is the real deal. I can't give any sort of argument except my gut instinct tells me he's an honest guy.

The show is heavily angled from the POV of the cops, and for a very good reason: they're the ones being followed with cameras. I think this is what causes some people to be skeptical of the content.

Just a heads up, the first season is on youtube


I've actually seen Through A Blue Lens when I was in elementary school as it was part of the D.A.R.E. program! A really great documentary, scared us shitless.
