Melbourne On Location
The majority of Australian television programs have been filmed in Sydney and Melbourne. In Sydney, the major output was by the Seven Network, whose studios were for many years located in Epping, on Sydney s North Shore. Initially, most of the dramatic TV programs that came out of Melbourne either originated with the ABC (their studios were at Ripponlea TV studios in Elsternwick), or Crawford Productions, a production house set up in 1945 by Hector Crawford and his sister, Dorothy, to produce radio programs. Crawfords would go on to pioneer television drama in Australia. The Company started life in small premises located in Little Collins Street, Melbourne, moved to the Olderfleet Building, Collins Street, Melbourne, then to Southampton Crescent, Abbotsford (1972), and eventually to its present location, 259 Middleborough Road, Box Hill, in 1982. Now part of the WIN television group and under the proprietorship of Bruce Gordon, Crawfords Australia s eight-acre studio complex in Melbourne remains a key centre for film and television program production in Australia.
