This show was shown in Canada for quite a while, and I can recall our entire family (6 kids + parents!) gathering in the living room and elbowing for room to sit and watch it. I recall that it was impressive because, unlike most shows at the time which were mostly sound stage or variety shows, it took place in many locations including outdoors in the countryside, obvious from the panoramas. We all loved it and were not impressed when it was cancelled.
I recall that the acting was consistent - we were intrigued by the Australian accents - and the story lines seemed to be believable. I can recall researching the show and being quite impressed that the Flying Doctor Service actually existed. I cannot help but believe that a new series based on the Service, with modern cinematography and special effects like CGI, would be successful and would frame the Service in a great light.
