Australian TV Shows

One of the most successful Australian TV shows used to be about a boy and his friend Skippy, the bush kangaroo from the 1960s. This is no longer a big export.

Australian TV is varied. We export shows that show off our beaches and culture, others that are quiz shows, medical and prison soaps and a whole lot more. Our TV shows are exported all around the world to scores of countries with some of our formats are used in even more countries. Seven’s Australian dramas “Home and Away”, “A Place to Call Home”, “Packed to the Rafters”, “All Saints”, “Always Greener” and “City Homicide” have been exported to and are shown in more than 150 countries. Nine’s “McLeod’s Daughters” has been sold into 190 international territories.

Australian TV show production reached a record high of $A334 million spent and included 37 titles that generated 441 hours of content. 15 children’s TV shows commenced production in 2018/19, worth $A105 million generated a high of 132 hours of content.
