NFSA Prisoner: 40th Anniversary with Val Lehman, Amanda Muggleton and Alan Caswell

Community Event

27 Feb 2019

Val Lehman (Bea Smith), Amanda Muggleton (Chrissie Latham) and musician Allan Caswell mark 40 years of Prisoner at NFSA.

The event will include the screening of an explosive episode of the series, Allan Caswell’s performance of the theme song, and a Q&A with the actresses, as they share their memories of the show, discuss its legacy, and react to their characters’ best scenes.

Premiering on Network Ten on 27 February 1979, Prisoner ran for eight years and 692 episodes. Following its immediate success in Australia, the Grundy production became an international hit spawning several remakes and re-imaginings – including the award-winning Foxtel series Wentworth.
