New Zealand's first ongoing drama series was set in a North Island timber town. At a time when Kiwi TV presenters and actors still aped the accents of England, it offered characters Kiwis could relate to: rural, bicultural, boozy and blokey. The series was conceived by ex forester Julian Dickon. Producing two seasons of six episodes each was a key step in the development of local screen drama, including early acting roles for Pat Evison and Ian Mune. Viewers and reviewers praised the show.
