Heh, the "Police National Computer"?  Seriously, I would have expected some 
kind of terminal setup too - although maybe forces started to get one or two

On another TV note, I spotted an Apple system in Fraggle Rock the other day... 
(strangely, it actually looked like a Monitor /// perched on top of a regular A2)
