Lots Of Kisses Before Lots Of Dying (With Special Guest Chez Robbie!)
A Country Podcast
by Melanie Tait
5M ago
It's here: the episodes we lose Shirley Gilroy in a plane crash.  This is a brilliant episode from Season 12 - it shows the beginning of Tom and Anna's romance, Esme falls a little in love with Percy... and young journalist Max Blair comes to town, dying of HIV AIDS.  The thing is - Mel and Kim aren't great on the later series and this ep is going to hurt for the purists. So, we've got Chez Robbie in as our fact checker, thank goodness.  Watch A Kiss Before Dying Part 1 &  A Kiss Before Dying Part 2 A COUNTRY PODCAST on Facebook Host/ Producer: Melanie Tait on Twitter&n ..read more

When Matron Maggie Sloan Came To Wandin Valley
A Country Podcast
by Melanie Tait
5M ago
After getting to know A Country Practice a lot better, by watching it as adults, we're both mad for Maggie Sloan and Esme Watson.  So, here we are watching the episode where Maggie Sloan comes to Wandin Valley. She's a bit of a punish, we don't see the softness in her that we come to love, but she's still a bit of legend.  What has ACP got to say about being a middle aged woman? These eps seem to have a lot to say.  In today's episode, Kim looks at the Dutch Reform Church and Melanie takes a peak into the life and career of the legendary Joan Sydney.  A COUNTRY PODCAST on F ..read more

MOLLY LIVES! Anne Tenney On TV's Biggest Moment
A Country Podcast
by Melanie Tait

1985. Brendan and Chloe are playing in the paddock with a kite, while Molly watches on from a lounge.

A Country Podcast
by Melanie Tait

We all remember the moment - Molly's death scene. Do we really need to start revising it and remembering that it's also Brendan's grieving scene? He's the one who has the line ("Molllllllllly!"), remember?  We're so excited to have Shane Withington on the show today, who played Brendan Jones for five years on A Country Practice - the way he talks about the show will have you wanting to jump into a time machine and audition to be part of the cast.  We'll be watching the very first episodes of ACP for today's ep - Wednesday's Child Part 1 and 2, from Season 3.  Guest: Shane Within ..read more

Was Season 14 Really Such A Big Disaster?
A Country Podcast
by Melanie Tait
5M ago
Season 14 is nothing if not controversial among die hard fans of A Country Practice. Some refuse to engage with it and pretend it never happened, that ACP ended with Terrence and Matron's wedding and everyone rode off into the sunset.  The show got a lot of things wrong: for a start, it relocated to Victoria. It lost half its stars. It used a soft filter none of us can work out.  Andrew Mercado is Australia's leading historian, and he watched it all unfold in real time in 1994. He's with us to talk about what the show wanted to be, why it didn't get there, and what TV was doing at th ..read more
