    An Oz TV production from a while back (30 years now) that didn't have any major stars in it-not much chance it'll get a full release now-Crawfords were releasing a lot of their back catalogue but mostly the long running stuff people of an age remember like 'The Sullivans'.

    Grew up on a diet of "The Sullivans". If Crawfords didn't want an arm an a leg for the DVD's I would be adding them to my collection for sure. It was so sad when Burt Duggan stepped on that landmine in N Africa after escaping Crete.

    All the best fella's
