Abstract

On June 25 a capacity crowd met at the St Kilda Town Hall in Melbourne – the city that is the home of iconic Australian television series Prisoner (1979-1986) – to celebrate 40 years since the show made its debut on Australia’s Network 10. Prisoner’s extraordinary 692-episode run is made more remarkable by the fact that it was commissioned as a 16-part standalone series. It has since spawned international remakes and reimaginings, perhaps most notably Wentworth (2013-), now in its seventh season.
