Ray Barrett had the lead in this ABC (Australia) drama series, playing Robbo – a freelance investigative sports journalist assisted by budding young reporter Jo (Liddy Clark).
For the series, ABC-TV carpenters built an almost full-scale model of the Sydney Journalist’s Club at a giant studio in Frenchs Forest. The carpenters also whipped up a large apartment where Robbo lived and worked.
Supporting Barrett and Clark throughout the series were a selection of actresses and actors including Belinda Giblin and Noni Hazelhurst.
