Great Australian American combination
27 July 2006 | by (Japan) – See all my reviews

Excellent TV from the 60s, this production was very interesting, it involved many styles from both countries the USA & Australia, it shows how close both cultures have evolved and have actually been one of the same through the past century. USA battled native Indians, Australia almost obliterated the aboriginal peoples, both countries had a gold rush, both countries had cowboys and outlaws, both countries made movies about its upbringing at the same time (Errol Flynn),and this TV show brings the closeness of the Australian culture and American culture as a culture born with many significant cultural ties. Both the USA and Australia have a common goal, that is to make everyone on earth feel they have made a contribution towards life as we know it. The great Peter Graves has added to this common goal, not only did he make Whiplash in 1960 in Australia he also made another Mission Impossible series in Australia in the 1980s.
