At one point, Australian oil company Ampol, who sponsored the series in the first year, planned a national advertising campaign which, if it had gone ahead, would have seen the faces of Tony Ward and Fernande Glyn appear on every Ampol petrol pump in Australia. See more »
This man wears no uniform. He has no rank. His name is often not his own. The law offers him no special protection, no exemption. If necessary, his own country will deny his existence. He is part commando, part detective, part spy. He is Hunter.

This series, generally about espionage along the eastern coast of Australia, made a star out of Gerard Kennedy (at least during the 1960s) due to his memorable and unforgettable portrayal of Kragg. Who was Kragg? A really nasty though occasionally charming chap who made hero John Hunter played by ex-news anchor Tony Ward look pretty ordinary. HUNTER is generally forgotten when Aussie dramas from the 1960s are discussed. It's the better-known HOMICIDE which gets the nod, probably as it was in all honesty a better-made series. But it didn't have Gerard Kennedy, an underrated actor who could have given Clint Eastwood a run for his money!
