Taste for Blue Ribbons is a half-hour drama series on Australian
television made in black and white in 1973. The story is about the Byrne
family who owns the Blue Ribbons horse-riding stable and school. It is
based on a novel by Eugene Lumbers in 1969, which in turn is inspired by
an earlier radio series on ABC. The emotional scenes like the foal's
operation and the entertaining ones like the first visit to the big city
by little Dee (Sally Conabere) and her brother Michael will have the
entire family glued to the telly.
