G'day Sullivans!

Just like a trusty boomerang, one of our fave Aussie families are back - this time on DVD, as The Sullivans Season One Volume One is released on 12th March.

Forget Neighbours and Home & Away, cos The Sullivans was the first and longest-running Australian drama to be broadcast on British TV - and how we loved it until the show stopped airing in 1988. Starring Mel Gibson, Paul Cronin, Lorraine Bayly and Andrew McFarlane as your typical family from Melbourne in 1939, we experienced the trials and tribulations of surviving WW2 through their eyes - along with audiences in 20 other countries around the world. And if your memory's as good as ours, you'll know that even the queen of pop, Kylie Minogue, made a cameo. And if it's good enough for our Kyl's... Pick up your DVD box set for £29.99 from Amazon.
