Trivia

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 »

Wonderfully authentic series portraying Australian history
13 July 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This was one of my favourite shows as a kid, loved stories of the Cobb & Co coach line and especially our bushrangers Most of our bushrangers were deemed heroic and the law was the bad guys Loved the theme song too - it is one of the few very show showing how Australia was back in those early days. I know that myself and my friends use to play at being bushrangers - we had some wonderfully colorful characters. Peter Graves gives a great portrayal of a coach driver of the era. Must admit though it was odd seeing him in Whiplash and then later on in the afternoon in an American series called Fury. I was unaware that it was shown in the US but nice to know that other nationalites liked it too - it is a shame that it did not take off.
