Monday's program is about worlds apart and a daughter's struggles with conflicting loyalties. Lyndall Hobbs left her family in Melbourne at the age of 20. She became a television reporter, notably on Mike Willesee's 'A Current Affair', and interviewed many of the biggest names of the era from Mohammed Ali to the Sex Pistols. She moved to London and then on to Hollywood. She established a directing career, working with Rowan Atkinson among others, before starting a seven-year relationship with Al Pacino. Settling in Los Angeles she raised a daughter, Lola from an early marriage to Chris Thompson, comedy writer/producer credited with having discovered Tom Hanks, and a son, Nick, adopted during her time with Pacino. When her ageing war veteran father became unwell back home in Australia, she faced a dilemma familiar to many baby boomers. Norman Hobbs was a Spitfire pilot and Changi veteran and in the end it was his values of love and sacrifice - and her need to honour his story - that drew her home.- Written by Australian Story
