Apparently not a very happy set which was overwhelmed with problems. The television company ATV had bought the Artransa Studios in anticipation of making further co-productions. However after 'Whiplash' they quickly sold on the studios and were never to return. See more »
I loved this show, and it turned me on to Australia at a very young age. This was my first exposure to the trademark "Aussie" hat (aka "Akubra") with one side of the brim up, attached to the side of the crown. In Peter Graves' character's case, I believe it was some kind of animal tooth that held it in place.
I pestered my mom and dad for YEARS to find me one, and finally we found a rough approximation in an Army surplus store, with a chain that would clip one side of the brim to the side of the crown. I wore it every day, and even after I got older I would wear it on camping trips.
I too wish at least one or two episodes had survived. I'm sure it would be terribly dated, but I think it would be fantastic.
