The following table lists all Australian television drama series and serials produced from 1954 to 1977, including children's drama and situation comedies.

'Series' are defined as programmes of more than three episodes which have self-contained narratives.

'Serials' are defined as programmes having a continuous narrative spanning three or more episodes, including mini-series and soap operas. (Mini-series have a predetermined set length, and soaps have an indefinite length).

Anthologies, plays, pilots that did not enter series production, telemovies and sketch comedy programmes are not included.

Year refers to that in which the show commenced series production. (If a pilot episode was made, it could be anything from a few months to several years earlier). Many shows were in production for more than one year, and screening dates could vary from the same year as production to several years later.

Cast details in this list are a guide only and are not exhaustive. Cast members listed did not necessarily appear in a show at the same time.

Episode lengths are standard for a commercial timeslot - some series had occasional feature-length episodes. Total number of episodes does not include pilots that were not incorporated into the production series.

Note that this section is intended only as a brief overview. Most series (those in the left column) have already been treated in detail and can be accessed form the home page. Serials (right column) will not be receiving detailed coverage.
