  • 'The Flying Doctor'

    Hello old friends, have been off the radar now for quite some time, health issues, hope all well. I just wanted to ask, do any members know if any old episodes exist of 'The Flying Doctor' the early 60s? Best Scenesixty.

    Good to see you back on the forum scenesixty. Sorry to hear you've had health issues & I hope you are well now.
    I can find no evidence of surviving episodes of "The Flying Doctor" on youtube.

    I also wish you welcome back and hope you're feeling better as well. Is this the series you mean [URL][/URL]? If so, it was shot on film and apparently all 39 episodes exist, but not commercialy available. An ABC co-production, so relevant copyright holder probably still owns them. Maybe a polite email to Network DVD?

      I’m old enough to remember The Flying Doctor as a programme on the old steam radio

      ”Flying Doctor calling Wollumboola base” :)

        While that was being made, there was also a pilot for a 'Trader Horn' series shot with John Turner (as Horn) and James Hayter as his side-kick.


        Here are Alan White, Jill Adams and Richard Genning at ABPC.

          One image I do recall from the original series was when Richard Denning as the good doctor retrieves a safety pin from a little girls throat.
          Funny how the memory picks things up!
