The Boys Are Back with Clive Owen. Set in SA and has some really beautiful scenery. One of my faves. It’s a tear jerker. You’ve been warned
Yes! Agreed, that was a good one too. Thanks for sharing.
You wrote a wonderful piece on my Australian born but Kiwi Grand daughter
Artist. Writer living in New York
I was thrilled to have her included
We love Clare, so delighted that you enjoyed the piece. Thanks for commenting. best wishes the AWNY team
Don’t forget Wentworth….it’s out on Netflix!!!
Wonderful list! Thank you.
I recently watched the series “Frayed” on HBO. Definitely worth a watch 👍🏼
Glad you liked it and thanks for the rec!!!
Mister Inbetween on FX (maybe Hulu) 3 seasons 2018 – 2021
Malcolm (1986) from David Parker and Nadia Tass. A classic- especially if you are from Melbourne and love trams.
Are these shows on Netflix?
Royal Flying Doctor Service on PBS! Great show.
The Castle, The Dish & Kenny…. Loved them all
Amazing 1972 documentary recording the events surrounding the establishment of the Aboriginal tent embassy on the lawns of Parliament House 50 years ago! Free to watch on kanopy if you have a library card https://www.kanopy.com/product/ningla-na
Anyone know where we can we watch The Tourist in the US??
