NFSA Live: On the Inside - A Prisoner Celebration
Audiences have been fascinated by the lives of the inmates of Wentworth Detention Centre since they first graced our screens in 1979. On the Inside: A Prisoner Celebration is your chance to hear what really went on behind the scenes of the iconic Australian soap opera!
Next in our series of NFSA Live events, we are presenting the online premiere of a very special Q&A session we hosted in Canberra for the 40th anniversary of Prisoner last year.
Join stars Val Lehman (Bea ‘Top Dog’ Smith) and Amanda Muggleton (Chrissie Latham), and musician Allan Caswell (author of the theme song 'On the Inside') as they discuss their involvement in the show and its long-lasting impact with audiences worldwide.
The presentation includes rare clips from the NFSA collection, as well as a live performance by Allan Caswell.
It will be introduced by NFSA Communications Manager, and Prisoner Super Fan, Miguel Gonzalez, who also hosted the Q&A on the night.
Please note: for copyright reasons, our live stream of the On the Inside special is available to viewers in Australia only. We will publish the Q&A on our website in coming weeks, so you can enjoy Val, Amanda and Allan's insights no matter where in the world you're located. We apologise for any inconvenience.
Join us online or risk being sent to the pound! Lagging is OK, so share the news with other Prisoner fans.
