All The Way was an Australian television series made by Crawford Productions for the Nine Network, which started out as a six-hour miniseries.

The first episode took place on the day in 1963 that John F. Kennedy was assassinated and the series examined the life of an Australian family (linked by three sisters played by Diana Davidson, Maggie Millar and Rowena Wallace) during the decade of LBJ, the Vietnam War, civil rights activism and The Beatles.

In the corny and incredible opening, Alan Scott (Martin Sacks), an expatriate Australian journalist who has just brought down the British government over the Profumo scandal and is single-handedly about to save Australia, shoulders his way off the plane, through airport customs and security, phones Dallas, speaks to a doctor, and announces to his stunned family not only that President Kennedy is dead, but also that they are probably the first people outside the hospital to be thus informed.

The series was not a success. It was critically panned and cancelled after only 32 episodes.

A young Dannii Minogue featured in the cast.
