1 form y separately published work icon Bullseye Robert Wales , Bob Ellis , ( dir. Charles Schultz ) Australia : PBL Productions , 1986 Z1517556 1986 single work film/TV humour The story of Harry Walford, an unlikely hero who overcomes hardship, emerges triumphant, and, in the process, pioneers the overland stock route from Southern Queensland to Adelaide. Based loosely on a true story, Bullseye takes place in Australia around the middle of the nineteenth century. Walford is a disgruntled stationhand who has found a ray of happiness in his relationship with maidservant Lily Boyd. However, when Lily comes into an inheritance, she breaks off their romance, causing Harry to turn to cattle-duffing (rustling). Arriving safely in Adelaide with his stolen cattle, he discovers that Lily is also in town but has lost all her money and been reduced to working in the local bordello. Rather than gloat, he decides to rescue her.

1 6 y separately published work icon The Cell : A Play Robert Wales , 1966 London : Evans Brothers , 1971 Z821346 1966 single work drama The Cell is set in a convent of an order which cares for delinquent girls; girls who are considered by court and welfare authorities to be worth the risk of more temrate treatment. Although they are released into the bond of the nuns rather than being sent to prison, in appearance the convent is little different. It too is a place of high walls, shadows, locked doors and carried keys.
