Set between 1995 and 2004 and based on real life events known as the Melbourne Gangland War in Melbourne, Victoria. Over thirty gangters, and their associates, as well as potential witnesses were murdered. Some of the crimes are still unsolved, and some of the cases are still before the courts, meaning the Series could not be aired in Victoria, although most Victorians who wanted to see it have seen it anyway. Filmed at as many of the original locations as possible. My wife's boss actually lived in the house where one of the gangsters was killed. (Murder took place after he sold the house and moved to Sydney) His old house appears in the show.

Second series is actually titled "Underbelly: A Tale of Two Cities" and is set prior to the original series. In New Zealand the second series is known as "Underbelly: The Mr Asia Story", after one of the main characters, New Zealand drug dealer Terry Clark, known as Mr Asia. While it is listed on IMDB as the second series, it is really a stand alone series based on the concept of the first, ie a dramatised recreation of actual events, albeit with quite a bit of creative licence. As it is listed under the same IMDB number on IMDB I have labeled the episodes as they appear on IMDB, with the second series title added as an AKA

@ valiant1962 - just wondering, why are all your screen grabs from this show in 4:3 format? You're probably missing a lot of cars by doing this (getting cut out of the frame).

Underbelly: The Golden Mile (season 3)
Underbelly: Badness (season 5)

Seasons 4 & 6 are set in the 20s and I don't have much interest in vintage cars so I probably won't be bothering adding them unless there's interest.

There are indeed some people here who like these old cars (not me, though that I do not dislike them either :D) and it can be interesting to have Australian models

Fair enough. Going by other shows on this site that are set in the 20s (like Boardwalk Empire and Downton Abbey) it seems there is very little interest. Nobody has uploaded any shots from Boardwalk Empire in about 3 years, while Downton Abbey hasn't had any uploads since last year.

In some episodes in Series 1, most of the vehicles had real Victoria registration plates.
