1 2 X Ray Chris Tugwell , 2003 single work drama

'X-Ray is about the detention of David Hicks, one of the alleged illegal combatants held in Cuba since the U.S. led invasion of Afghanistan.

'The Hicks character tells of growing up in Adelaide, the appeal of and his study of Islam, and how he came to find himself bearing arms in Afghanistan.

'Hicks is portrayed as a larrikin character who found himself in the wrong place at the wrong time, and who has been poorly treated by the Australian government, the only one of forty-one nations whose citizens are detained which has not protested at their detention, which is itself not in accord with The Geneva Convention of 1949.'

While playing a computer game, Patrick is invited to take part in a million-dollar game show--which seemingly airs on a channel that doesn't exist. But Patrick perseveres, and finds himself transported through his television and across the time barrier. From there, he passes back and forth across the barriers between dimensions, tracing various lost objects. Series two follows the same basic premise, but with the addition of a friend of Patrick's becoming accidentally trapped on the far side of the barrier.
