I watched this, when it was originally on tv all those years ago. Ive just bought it as a 2014 December birthday & Xmas present to myself - the full TV series and bonus mini series from 'Crawfords Australian site' - and am I glad I did!! (you can buy a different dvd set of this) We're just loving this show, MASH will always be my favourite TV show, but, the flying doctors is up there too, the characters are pure perfection, the main actors too, you'll fall in love with them all. the Australian outback - WOW, you will want to learn more about it, let alone, try and get out there sometime. beautiful, haunting, great stories, not too much blood and gore, swearing etc, just good solid storylines, that resonate even today -more 'innocent TV' which, when you watch this, wish back for those times - no matter where you live or who you are, you are guaranteed of enjoyable viewing - pure family viewing.
