Posie Graeme-Evans on Talking Heads

Here’s one for true fans of Australian television, an interview with Posie Graeme-Evans on the ABC’s Talking Heads.

Graeme-Evans co-created both McLeod’s Daughters and Hi-5 for the Nine Network, and rose high in its ranks as Director of Drama for Nine from 2002 to 2005. In such a blokey industry, she is one of too few women in television to have held a managerial role.

Earlier this year Nine bought the production company Kids Like Us and the Hi-5 brand with Southern Star.

It screens at 6:30pm Monday October 6th on ABC1.

Press Release:
This week on Talking Heads, Peter Thompson talks to Posie Graeme-Evans, creator of the smash hit TV shows McLeod’s Daughters and Hi-5, which can now be seen around the world. Her medieval romance novels are best sellers. In one sense she lives in a fantasy world, dreaming up stories, but to sell those ideas she’s had to become a formidable wheeler-dealer.

  1. When you mentioned that you now live in Tasmania I thought of my six weeks in Tasmania a year ago at Molesworth nr.New Norfolk keeping an eye on my sister’s property – horses,sheep (6), chooks,geese!!! etc. Sue my sister and her husband had gone to England to see a daughter. Their prorerty is approached by crossing a stream past an oast house( belonging to, at that time, rather by dodgey people), and driving up a steep hill around several hairpin bends before arriving . Their house was built well over a centuary ago as a weekend retreat by the then treasurer of Tas.and has a Gothic appearance and feeling.

    The house is very isolated, surrounded by a beautiful garden and trees which brushed against the windows during the night.The last advice Sue and Paul gave me before they left for Britain was “Don’t talk to the wood choppers”. They had no TV reception and only one FM station. As it was the beginning of winter the field mice decided it was warmer inside th house. One of the dogs was an epilectic and required medication, it was difficult to avoid being attacked by the geese,the guinea fowls were hard to round up in the afternoon ( the sun disappeared over the hill by 3pm.),and by the howling at night, there must have been a Tasmanian Devil underneath the floor boards of the house.
    Tasmania might be a place for another successful TV film and they certainly need a boost in their econoomy.It is such a wonderful place.

  2. Posie is a really great lady she gave me heaps of advice on a series i created and how to approch the networks. She spent a lot of her valuable time on helping me out. She knows her stuff and is very inteligent if you want to learn about the industry listen to her.

    She should be in charge of a network now.
