1 y Sailing to Cairns Diane Andrews , Queensland : Diane Andrews Publishing , 2008 6200249 2008 single work prose travel

'Dennis and Diane sailed a sixteen foot yacht from Sydney to Cairns. They set out with a few dodgey bits of equipment and an Alan Lucas cruising guide. Dennis wrote the log. Diane wrote the very funny novel of the adventure. Inside its pages you will find a humorous account of the journey laced with invaluable information for the fellow intrepid sailor. I'd suggest a slightly bigger boat - but so long as it floats it can be done.' (iTunes preview)

1 form y Taurus Rising Reg Watson , Denise Morgan , Michael Brindley , Christine McCourt , Sydney : Reg Grundy Enterprises , 1982 Z1827286 1982 series - publisher film/TV

Designed as an antipodean counterpart to glossy American soap operas Dallas and Dynasty, Taurus Rising (which traced the rivalry of two affluent families, the Drysdales and the Brents) cost $4.5 million to produce, but did so poorly on air that it was rapidly shifted to a weekend timeslot (according to Moran, in his Guide to Australian TV Series) and ultimately ran to only nineteen episodes. It did, however, later sell to overseas markets, where it was marketed as an extended mini-series.

Stamp , Barbara Vernon , Ron Harrison , David William Boutland , Ron McLean , Phillip Grenville Mann , 1973 Sydney : ABC Television , 1973-1977 Z1857626 1973 series - publisher film/TV

Certain Women began as a short series in 1973 and continued on as a serial until 1977. At the centre of the narrative were six women from three generations of a Sydney family. Dolly has two daughters Freda and Jane. Jane has three daughters Marjorie, Helen, and Gillian.

In a short piece announcing the extension of the series after the broadcast of the first six episodes television critic Valda Marshall said the decision to make further episodes 'should also keep the women's libbers happy ... so far as I know, it's the first TV series made here specifically as a starring vehicle for women'.
