In the Late 80s or early 90s, channel 7, I believe, produced a fantastic mini-series on Smithy. (They even went so far as to build a couple of flyable Bristol Tourers from scratch..after many problems obtaining the plans from England)

Does anyone remember what the series was called and where, if at all, I can get a copy?

(For you non-Aussies, Smithy was Sir Charles Kingsford Smith, WW1 fighter pilot, holder of many record-breaking flight titles, founder of QANTAS and an all-round Aussie larrikin.)

Recall seeing something like that waaaaaaaay back.
Just a hunch though, it seems to be more the ABC type thing than 7, maybe try the ABC Shop, they have some amazing stuff in there.

Cheers.
