THE LAST OF THE AUSTRALIANS is a remarkable and worthy milestone in Crawford Productions’ impressive library of home-grown Australian entertainment. 

First conceived in 1974 and filmed before a studio audience, this popular sit-com ran for two seasons.  Alwyn Kurts (formerly Insp. Fox in HOMICIDE) displays an uncanny comedic talent as Ted Cook, a noisy bigoted Aussie bloke in his late fifties.   A proud and patriotic ex WW2 digger, Ted now finds himself with a career as a lift operator.   He’s never without an opinion – professing a particular dislike for the Labour Party, hippies, feminists and every footy team other than his beloved Collingwood. 

Dot, his long suffering wife (played by Rosie Sturgess), knows Ted’s bark is worse than his bite and for the most part she is immune to his bluster.  Ted also knows Dot has a bite of her own. 

Gary, their 19 year old university student son is rarely without a new girlfriend.  Quick to offer his own progressive views at home – Gary often brings himself into conflict with his father. 

But beneath it all, the Cook family share a deep affection for one another.

Ted is occasionally joined by his drinking mates ‘Bluey’ Dawson (Terry Norris), Fred (John Ewart) and Barney (Maurie Fields).  Other guest artists include John Farnham, Jacki Weaver, Terry Donovan, Noni Hazlehurst and even a cameo appearance by Bob Hawke playing himself.

Enjoy THE LAST OF THE AUSTRALIANS - a uniquely Aussie comedy
