Australian TV Lancaster-Miller Affair, The (Channel 9 1985, Nicholas Eadie, Kerry Mack) Published 3 years ago on August 17, 2016 Period drama serial The Lancaster Miller Affair followed the lives of 1920’s air ace Bill Lancaster and his lover Chubbie Miller, especially Lancaster’s attempt to become the first to fly from Britain to Australia and later Lancaster’s trial for murdering one of Chubbie’s lovers in 1932 (Lancaster and Miller had married by this stage but he was in Mexico and she was living in Florida working on her memoirs with Haden Clarke who was later found shot dead with Miller as chief suspect. He was put on trial but acquitted in just five hours.) Another one of those classic Aussie mini-series that were hugely popular back in the 1980’s. This one was blessed with a particularly fine script from the always excellent Peter Yeldham. There was a small role here for Charles Dance and both John Lee and Bud Tingwell had worked extensively in the UK earlier in their careers. production details Australia / 9 Network – Lancaster Miller Productions / 5×60 minute episodes / Broadcast 6 – 8 July 1985 Writer: Peter Yeldham / Camera: Ross Berryman / Design: David Copping / Costume: Bruce Finlayson / Music: Frank Strangio / Producer: Paul Davies / Director: Henri Safran cast NICHOLAS EADIE as Bill Lancaster KERRY MACK as Chubbie Miller MALCOLM ROBERTSON as James Carson WAYNE GULL as Haden Clarke JUNE SALTER as Maud Lancaster BARRY HILL as Edward Lancaster LISA ARMYTAGE as Anne Lancaster JOHN LEE as Charles Colby EARL FRANCIS as Editor STEPHEN COSTAIN as George CHARLES DANCE as Aircraft Company Manager BILL RICHARDSON as Stewart Cartwright CHARLES ‘BUD’ TINGWELL as Sam Hayes Bill RichardsonBiographyChannel 9Charles "Bud" TingwellCharles DanceHenri SafranJohn LeePeriod dramaPeter YeldhamTV Advertisement advertisement and this just in Episodes13 hours ago House Hunters: Green Acres In Agoura Hills (S153EP2 HGTV Mon 25 Feb 2019) Green Acres In Agoura Hills: A single mother wants to relocate to a home in the city of Agoura Hills,...
