Graham Kennedy candle
A wax candle crafted in the shape of Graham’s head. It was made in the early-mid 1970s by freelance TV scriptwriter Roger Dunn for an internal promotion by Melbourne TV station GTV 9.
As well as being an AWGIE-award winning scriptwriter, Roger Dunn set up Dunwix, a backyard novelty-candle-making business, in his garage which lasted for about five years during the 1970s. Roger's extensive screenwriting credits include The Sullivans, Bellbird, The Box, A Country Practice, Neighbours and Return to Eden.
Judy Leech donated this candle to the NFSA and it came from the collection of her father, Jack Leech, a studio technician with Radio 3AK in Melbourne (owned by TV station GTV 9), where Graham worked.
