Volume One - September 1, 1939 to February 17, 1940
War is looming and it poses very special threats to the Sullivans and their friends. Dave is a veteran of WWI and Grace, his wife, fears that he will enlist to fight again - but it is their son Tom who is the first to go off to war.

Local German shopkeepers, the Kauffmans, face discrimination and risk internment while amidst the turmoil is John Sullivan’s love for their daughter Anna.

With the war preoccupying the adults, 13-year-old Kitty Sullivan embarks on an innocent relationship with a lonely man – much to the consternation of Mrs. Jessup their nosey neighbour.

  12. Excellent series
    Posted by Julie on 4/11/2019

    This was a favorite show of mine growing up and to be able to share this with my own children is a real blessing. We don't have these clean family shows on tv anymore which is a real shame.

    Posted by Ann on 30/09/2019

    It was lovely to reivie the old memories, that watching this programme brought back to me. the pictures were good, but the sound quality was not quite so good. It is so nice to be able to watch a programme without any ad breaks.
  14. Love it

    Mum loves it
  15. Weirdly entertaing.
    Posted by David on 3/06/2019

    Dated but entertaining enough.One weirdly unsettingly thing is you have an obviously woman in her twentys playing a girl in her early teens but you get to re enjoy the performances of all those actors when they were in their prime.

  19. A wonderful re-visiting of a series viewed only in part in 197-'s
    Posted by Margaret on 13/05/2019

    I really enjoyed seeing this series again, having lived a few streets away from the Sullivan house, in the 70's. I went on to purchase the entire series, and found it a wonderful piece of social history.

  25. Excellent Australian Drama
    Posted by Unknown on 17/03/2017

    What do you get your 81 year old mother for xmas, the classic solved my problem of what to get & she loves her dvds...
  26. A wonderful dvd ,
    Posted by Sue on 17/03/2017

    Clear and good memory's of the old days It was received in days of buying it.
  27. Classic tale with dated acting style
    Posted by John F on 17/03/2017

    The Sullivans has to be one of Australia's best loved series from the late 70's with Lorraine Bayly as Grace, showing her skills as a natural actor. The rest of the cast didn't quite match her ability with some of Kitty's responses dating the show somewhat. I regret not seeing the series on its initail run to enjoy the memories that such experiences offer.
    It was fabulous to see Michael Caton, as Uncle Harry, in one of his earliest roles and see him still performing admirably in the recently released film "Last Cab to Darwin". I look forward to warming to the characters having just watched the first 2 Episodes.
  28. Great memories
    Posted by Dave on 17/03/2017

    What a fantastic show the Sulivans was I can wait to watch the entire series, I sit down to watch one episode and end up watching 5.

    Posted by Unknown on 17/03/2017

    An example of Australian TV Drama invested with the values and and mores of an imagined glorious golden era; the 1940s
  30. Wonderful Memories
    Posted by Diana on 17/03/2017

    I couldn't wait to get my copy of The Sullivan's as I haven't seen it since the early 80's and I so wanted to relive the war time story by this series. Wonderful memories! They said I would bet my DVD's within a certain time and they came before the date they said, great doing business with Crawford Production. I can't wait for the remaining seasons only 14 to go.
  31. What else would you buy the mother in law for her Birthday?
    Posted by Donald W on 17/03/2017

    What else would you buy the mother in law for her Birthday? Sure...make all the jokes you want...but my mother in law is the best in the world. I really, really wanted to buy and watch these I knew this would make the perfect gift for Mumsy because there is nothing better for the soul than giving. Added bonus...I will get to watch them with her when we visit so I now have something wonderful to look forward to as well.
    Thanks and Happy Birthday Mumsy.

  33. A family favourite
    Posted by Karen Allen on 17/03/2017

    This was a phenomenal series when it aired in the 1980's, and it still is.

    The drama and actors are great - excellent story lines, played out by outstanding actors.

    A much loved family favourite that everyone should have on DVD.
  34. The Way We Were.
    Posted by Patricia Groenewoud on 17/03/2017

    A journey back in time faithfully portraying the way we were. No sex or violence which makes the whole potrayal more interesting and more true to life. Also a trip down memory lane for me. Everynight my family, when they were young, would gather to watch The Sullivans. The only series we all loved together. My family watching a family and remembering,
