Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The principal characters in this Australian miniseries were James Casey (John Meillon) and his terminally ill son, Sean (Mark Shields-Brown). Throughout the series' three 75-minute episodes, James met with formidable obstacles as he endeavored to grant Sean his three last wishes: to get a dog, to be reunited with his mother, and to meet the Queen of England. The story concluded with the proposal, and granting, of a mysterious fourth wish. Based on a true story, The Fourth Wish aired over the Australian ABC network in 1976; two years later, a feature-film version appeared, again starring John Meillon.
