TV Eye magazine first appeared in September
1993, filling a large void in Australian television nostalgia, and contained articles,
interviews and episode guides about the first twenty years of Aussie television
drama. TV Eye was a non-profit, volunteer
effort and spanned 15 quarterly issues. Produced whenever other commitments
permitted, time and financial constraints eventually reached the point where TV Eye
in its printed format was no longer viable, and production ceased in
favour of establishing this web site. The interviews that appeared
in TV Eye are reproduced here as they were originally printed - just
