One of the first "Must Watch" series from Australia
The 1970s saw a rebirth for the Australian film industry. This had a positive effect on TV production. The Whitlam years had given Australians confidence in hearing and telling their own stories. "Rush" was one of the first series to tell the story of the Australian bush of the mid 19th century in an authentic way. The lead, played by John Waters, was superb casting and there was great support as well. The music, by Australian composer George Dreyfus, actually made the hit parade. The success of this series made the networks more committed to the production of commercial Australian drama. The ABC went on to make many more fine programs about Australian settlement.
