Storyline

All The Way is a drama series that turns the clock back to 1963 and the swinging sixties. Growing up in the sixties was like waking every day to find the world had changed. Music, fashion, politics and social and moral issues were all in a state of flux. For teenagers, it was a time of new freedom, new ideas and exciting new possibilities. For their parents, society's changing attitudes were confronting, painful and, at times, downright impossible. Introduction of the contraceptive pill,conscription, the Beatles and Bob Dylan, the Menzies era, the Cuban Missile Crisis,assassination of US President John Fitzgerald Kennedy,and his brother Robert, anti-hanging protests, the Profumo affair, the assassination of civil rights champion Martin Luther-King, the Vietnam War.

Ambitious Project that did not quite work
22 August 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

All the Way was a mini-series working as a pilot for a drama series. It was cashing in on the 1980's nostalgia of the 1960's. The mini-series was five hours long, in three parts, very similar to many other mini-series of the day in length and similar to the Ten Network mini-series 'Vietnam.' The series then became a weekly drama serial, which did not rate. One of the problems was change of actors from the mini-series, so, for example, Penny Seymour played by Jacqui McKenzie in the mini-series became Dannii Minogue in the actual series. I did not see a lot of the series but I certainly liked what I did see, and I think it was a case of bad timing in its failure, there was also as I said similarities with the series Vietnam, both in the sixties with teenage daughter and father working for the Australian Government. There was as I recall one really good episode, in the actual series on Censorship, and for that alone I do remember the series. Sadly, not much else about it is remembered, and even this site at this stage does not even mention the 24 episode run, which I have tried to correct. For any information you want, if anyone does venture this way look up the URL - http://www.crawfords.com.au/library/series/alltheway.shtml it does not say much but gives some brief information on a series which has all but disappeared from memory in Australian TV history.
