Nearly 30 years before The Flying Doctors took off from Cooper’s Crossing, tall, handsome American doctor Greg Graham (Richard Denning), his blind assistant Dr Harrison (Peter Madden) and his trusty nurse, Mary (Jill Adams), were life-savers in the Australian outback.
Responding to urgent radio messages, they winged their way (always just in the nick of time) to remote patients in a small plane piloted by their friend, Charley (Alan White).
Graham had arrived in Australia on leave from a research institute in San Francisco.
The series was filmed partly at Elstree studios in Hertfordshire and partly on location in Australia.
