Note: I found this rare Australian film couple months ago on, it originally came with commercials (a ton of them), I managed to trim all of them without re-encoding with a neat little software called Losslesscut but a 8 seconds glitch was produced from 58:16 to 58:24 where image freezes, audio is still good, unfortunately by the time I realized it it was too late otherwise would have re-done, I don’t think it’s a big deal but thought I’d be worth mentioning it anyway. Enjoy!

    Made in 1987 and first screened during 1988 Australia’s Bicentennial year from Kennedy Miller & Ten network as it was known then. Much thanks as have not seen it since that time and really enjoyed it back then.
