Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Co-produced by Britain's Channel Four and Australia's Seven Network, the two-part miniseries Kangaroo Palace was set in the "swinging" London of the 1960s. The story focused upon a trio of young Australians who'd come to Great Britain to seek their fortunes, establishing residence in a low-rent flat which they nicknamed Kangaroo Palace. One of the transplanted Aussies, Catherine Macaleese (Jacqueline McKenzie), was on a dual mission: to establish herself as a professional photographer and to track down her long-missing father. The other two flatmates were Heather Randall (Rebecca Gibney), who merely wanted to "party on" in perpetuity, and Richard Turner (John Polson), who'd bolted Australia to escape his irksome fiancée. Kangaroo Palace was originally seen in two 120-minute doses in 1997.
