About Crawford DVD
Crawford Productions proudly bears the name of Australia's legendary entertainment mogul, Hector Crawford. From its beginning as a radio production facility in 1945, the company has grown into a television production powerhouse that now has over 4,000 hours of top-quality and multi-award winning television programming available - all produced by Crawford Productions.
The company has changed radically over the years. With Hector Crawford at the helm, Crawford Productions produced a string of domestic prime time drama successes, and became an on-the-job training ground for many of Australia's most famous performers, producers, writers, directors and other behind-the-scenes luminaries. The Sullivans was seen in over 70 countries in the 70's and 80's and when Australia went to colour in 1972, production boomed! Later, The Flying Doctors would carry the Crawford name worldwide.
With the passing of Hector Crawford in 1991, Australia lost a great showman and entrepreneur, but the company continued to prosper under the aegis of Bruce Gordon, the Sydney-born producer once referred to as "the dean of international television", and the owner of Australia's WIN television network.
