The action this week was focused around the visit from Uncle
Jack and the three Auntys and the ongoing tension between the
O'Neills and neighbour Mrs Johnson. This meant that the set
was honoured with the presence of some very familiar faces from
Australian screens in the form of distinguished acrors, Penne
Hackforth-Jones, Gillian Jones, Arthur Dignam, Jackie Kelleher,
Wendy Playfair and Benita Collings.
Director, Julie Bertuccelli, with Arthur Dignam, who plays Uncle Jack
All of the Australian crew were in awe of Benita Collings, who they fondly remembered as their favourite presenter from Play School in their childhood days. Click here for a video of Benita in action in Play School on the ABC.
