AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The highly anticipated three part mini-series of the modern Australian classic novel. Set in and around Perth during the 40s and 50s, Cloudstreet tells the story of two rural families who suffer separate catastrophes and flee to the city to pick up the pieces of their lives and start again. Brought together in the same house at No.1 Cloud Street, the Lambs and the Pickles' share numerous tragedies and triumphs that draw them closer together, until the roof over their heads becomes a home for their hearts.'

'Australian film and television production is concentrated in two principal cities, Sydney and Melbourne, and dispersed among the metropolitan centres of Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth and the next rung of cities and regions including the Gold Coast, Canberra, Hobart and Darwin among others. National and international integration is reshaping the relations among, the television programming taking place within, and the production capabilities and infrastructures of these cities. This article considers the national distribution of screen production capabilities and how media design interests in their coordination, development and control of production activity interact with location interests seeking to sustain production work across these cities.'

Figures of the Many and the One : Genre and Narrative Method in Tim Winton’s 'Cloudstreet' Fiona Morrison , 1999 single work criticism
— Appears in: Sydney Studies in English , vol. 25 no. 1999;
'For Christmas 1998, Penguin Australia produced Cloudstreet in a hardcover edition under the Viking imprint. As well as author's name and title, the cover includes the phrase: 'the modern Australian classic.' The authoritative use of the definite article is matched by the design of classic navy blue and gold spine supporting a sepia photograph of a boat, with its reflection visible on the water. The profitable production of Cloudstreet as a hardcover 'modern classic' seven years after its first publication suggests a canny market response to the Australian readership's discernible desire for 'quality' historical fiction about modern Australian identity, using recognisably Australian idiom. Nick Enright, a successful Australian playwright and one of the co-authors of a stageplay of Cloudstreet, has said: 'People get that look in their eye, that Cloudstreet look,' and that he regards the book as having 'leapt the fence in Australia, it's in the bloodstream of the nation.' Enright's description of zealous, or perhaps sentimental, reader responses and his breadth and depth metaphors of 'fence-leaping' and 'national bloodstream' subtends the success of Cloudstreet's market status as the national classic, and foregrounds the wide appeal of Winton's thematics of belonging and displacement, as well as the text's nostalgic regard for the (now lost) importance of affective social bonds. In this sense Cloudstreet's various productions and reception must be addressed in the context of fin de siècle politics of Australian identity as well as Winton's particular sense of character, use of humour, incisive use of the vernacular, and investment in a lyrical mysticism.'
