There was this show back in the 70s I think ,called New York Illustrated .
You can't find it on line or DVD ,which sucks given how cool it was.
Each week focused on an issue in nyc .
My uncle was a cop in the 41st precinct ,which was the pct in the Bronx they called Fort Apache ,because it was like the wild west .
That is the pct they made the movie about,with Paul Newman .
That movie severely POed the entire pct ,given how badly they warped the truth in it btw.
In any case,one week they featured Fort Apache on New York illustrated .
My uncle is in most of it . Someone he knows found copies of the show in a college archive,of all places.
He made copies,despite it being a no no for that library .
Then later on,that episode won a frigging Emmy award. The guys who won thanked my uncle in their acceptance speech .
I was about 7 ,and I was jumping around whooping they said his name in TV .
He was retired by the time COPS was born .
