Here's a look at Aussie Ben Lawson as patriarch John Walton Sr. in the new-look Waltons.

Evergreen US series The Waltons has just had its rebooted telemovie The Waltons: Homecoming screen stateside, to mark a 50th anniversary.

It was introduced by original cast member Richard Thomas, who appeared across many its 9 seasons as ‘John Boy’ alongside stars such as Ralph Waite, Michael Learned and Will Geer.
