WIN celebrates The Sullivans

A bit of nostalgia for viewers in regional WIN Television territory on Christmas night.

WIN will be broadcasting a half-hour special, The Sullivans: A Walk Down Memory Lane, to commemorate 40 years since the series made its debut.

The program promises “a walk down memory lane with some of the stars. Lorraine Bayly, Andrew McFarlane and Steven Tandy reminisce about producing this iconic show”.

Crawfords Australia, which produced The Sullivans for the Nine Network from 1976 to 1983, is now owned by WIN, which has been releasing The Sullivans and various other Crawford titles on DVD.

The Sullivans made its debut on 15 November 1976 in Sydney and Melbourne. It was a ratings hit for Nine and was sold to over 30 countries.

The series also collected a string of TV Week Logies, including Best New Drama in 1977 and Most Popular Drama in 1978, 1979 and 1980.

The 1114th and final episode aired in 1983.

The Sullivans: A Walk Down Memory Lane. Sunday 25 December, 6.30pm. WIN.

    I know WIN owns Crawford productions but it was broadcast on channel 9 for years and including repeats especially for metro viewers
