Comments: This is a great site, I'm amazed at the dedication of the compiler and very grateful for its existence, being a besotted fan of ACP, the original, of course!I first began watching at the episode where Michael arrives and never missed an episode thereafter, thanks to my trusty VCR, except once or twice when our cable went out. I was shocked when I realised it was cancelled-what TV executive idiot made THAT decision? I watched the second series, a poor substitute, and am delighted that Showcase is repeating the series so that I'm now watching Vicky, Simon, Terence, Marta, Frank and Shirley, Molly and Brendan live their lives-hooray for reruns! Our great Showcase channel has Water Rats and Adrenalin Junkies too, which I also watch, and they have links to the fan sites, which is how I found this great site. Somewhere I read that Molly singing Blow the wind southerly was a favourite - I've not seen that yet of course, but the song is a North Country folk song from Tyneside, Northumberland, and every Geordie, as Tynesiders are known as, grows up with this lovely song. I have it on an LP sung by Kathleen Ferrier, a wonderful singer, incase the person who loves the song is interested. (I'm a Geordie-although I've lived in Alberta for 30 years) Keep up the good work!!! P.S. One quibble-I tried to e-mail this song info but the e-mail function doesn't seem to be functioning at the moment.

Comments: Hi, I'm a big fan of ACP and I'm thrilled to find a fantastic site dedicated to it! Well done! It's permanantly bookmarked on my browser! I saw all the original episodes and am currently enjoying the re-runs on ch.7 (via vcr..shhh!) It may interest some to know that my friend used to own Dr. Harry Morrison's beat up vw combi "Old Nellie". Remember? The flag across the roof is quite distinctive! And I can assure everyone that the way you see it on the show is exactly the way it was when we used to drive it down the Hume Hwy and back to Sydney on regular occasions! Broke down more times than I care to remember! Ahh...memories!

Comments: Hi! I live in Stayner, Ontario, Canada. Thanks for a great web site! I have been HOOKED on ACP ever since I was home on maternity leave. Actually the first episode I saw was when Frank and Shirley thought she was pregnant when she actually had a tumour and I've been watching it ever since. I was completly heart broken when the series ended but I am enjoying the repeats sooooooo much. I now get to see all the episodes I missed when I had to go back to work. Like when Molly died and Steve died. My all time favourite characters are Terrance, Simon, Molly, Lucy and Kate but I have to admit my all time least favourite was Marta. I wonder what some of the cast members I listed are up to now! If anyone knows please e-mail me!

Comments: Hi! It's great to finally find a website on my favourite show! I'm from Australia, so I've seen all the episodes the first time around and if any of you are too impatient (like me) to see what happens in episodes you haven't seen yet, email me your questions and I'll answer them! I really liked the 2nd series done by Channel 10, although Channel 10 doesn't have the big budgets that Channel 7 does so the standard wasn't the same. Of all the episodes of ACP, Ian McIntyre the park ranger was my favourite character and my least favourite was Claire, the new nurse, because she wasn't nice to Ian! Anyway, I'd been looking for ACP on the internet for ages and I'm glad to have finally found one.

But you certainly did steal my idea: I was going to make a fansite (although it was based originally on dodgy but totally loveable Australian TV shows ie. Hunter, ACP, Prisoner, Sons & Daughters). Keep up the fantabulous work!!! (and get some schmoozy pics of the cast, PARTICUARLY Esme and Cookie: I KNOW they were secretly having an affair underneath the bar)

Comments: I was thrilled to find a web site for ACP - AT LAST. I have been searching for the last year. I havae been a fan of the show ever since I found it when off sick from work way back in 1983. I think my all time favourite charachter has to be Maggie Sloan, she was quite superb! I also quite liked Harry Morrison, for quite a different reason. Seriously, I think ACP is THE best programme to come out of Australia. I never called it a soap because I think it was far better than that. I still have the final two episodes , where the Valley burned, on tape and I still cry when I see the pictures of Molly and Brendan. i still do not understand why Seven Network cancelled it. That is totally beyond me.

Comments: I have e mailed you, but just want to thank you for doing such a fantastic job on your web site. YESSSSSSSSSS, I am so happy to be going through it. It will take some time, but I shall savour every moment I spend with it. Now a few questions, but first one BIG suggestion, PLEASE, please could you change your guestbook sit colours. Purple on Black is impossible for me (a sever migrane sufferer) to read. I know that I am not the only person in the World, but I do want to read peopl's comments. However if you have never had migrane, you can have no idea what it is like trying to read the dreambook. The words "dance" all over the place. Ok now to the questions. I get the feeling that we are getting close to the end of the original series, Maggie Sloan has come back. I have missed it for a couple of months and am totally lost. Esmae, is still around. How long was it from the time Maggie came back to the fire that you mention? Any other people from Nova Scotia reading this site? I will be back frequently. I much prefer ACP to North American soaps, People on ACP know how to have good clean fun and it is much more believable. Aslo, being in the medical World, I am impressed by the accuracy of the scenes in the hospital. Great site, thanks a lot.

Comments: Fortunatly no one died in the fire. In the end you find out that Anna is pregnant with a girl and Terrance and Rosemary get married. Then they started 'The New Country Practice' which I dislike. Like everyone else has said, it's like the others never exsisted. I guess you can assume that Terrance and Rosemary moved away, and you know that Kate is devorcing Harry, but other than that, no one else is ever mentioned. I hope that the 'New' series isn't on for too much longer.

I have fond memories of watching it as I was growing up, and pretending we were the characters at school (I was Lucy!) However, I don't remember anything about the "new" country practice..when was it aired in Australia and did it have any of the old characters at all? Anyway, keep up the GREAT work!! I'll be back soon.

Comments: This is brilliant, a wonderful place to relive old memories. Here in Canada we receive the show once a day from one 0'clock untill 2 0'clock in the afternoon. It is a great break from "other" soaps, down to earth and not full of smutt. I do miss Cookie and Bob though. I am not too sure how far from the end we are but when we visited Australia in 1996 I was heart broken to find out that the show had finished. My nan lives in England and she said that it has just finished there too. Never mind,we now have this great site and I will look forward to visiting again. Thank you so much, you have made my day.

Comments: Brilliant! My favourite show has a website! And an EXCELLENT one at that! I couldn't believe it when they cancelled ACP! The wonderful storylines and fine acting is sorely missed by millions of people - thank God we get repeats! I've also videoed most of the episodes from 1987 onwards - does anybody have the earlier ones by any chance? Would anyone be interested in having an ACP convention? We have a small fanclub in Brisbane, presently only open to Queensland residents - but we would like to organise a big event if there is enough interest. I shall check back in regularly to see if there's any interest on the board, and will post my email address as soon as I have one. Thanks for all the hard work that's gone in to this site!

Comments: I am Danish and live in Denmark. I watch ACP on the Norwegian television which we are so lucky to have on our cablenet. I love to watch ACP and watched it first time about 10 years ago on SKY-channel for about a half year and got hooked. Then SKY-channel was removed from our cablenet, but about a year ago we got the Norweigian TV2, and I was very happy when I found out, that ACP was on. I really love your homepage and have been using it quite a lot to catch up with the episodes I was not able to watch. But I can see that the Norwegian episodes are way behind the Canadians, and unfortunately the episodes in Norway is only ý hour every day. Kitty it is a great page, I look forward to visit again quite often. Greetings from Denmark

Trust me, I know that it was Jamie Croft, not Cross, who played Billy. Thanks for pointing it out. It's been fixed. :)

Comments: To all the ACP fans out there, how glad I am to find you. ACP has meant so much to me in my life, especially the last three years of the show in Australia (not including the repetes). I have faithfully video recorded every episode from the time when Anna Lacey comes to the Valley till the very end. I've also got a very comprehensive collection of magazine articles as well, about the show and it's cast members, from about the time Anne Brennan and Kris Kuros left the show...if anyone is interested. A message to Ricki?, who believes she is the only one with the special edition booklet on Wandin Valley, you are not alone! It is almost my bible! Just kidding. A short anecdote about the medical side of the show. It is extremely educational, and almost always correct...except for the odd back-to-front X-ray! the day I really felt my ACP love really paid off was the day I diagnosed Guilliane Barre Syndrome in a patient, by recalling all of Hugo's symptoms! Needless to say, my tutor was very shocked, both for knowing about this obscure disease, and the root of this knowledge! What a show!

Comments: This is brilliant!!! I thought I would never find anything on "my" show on the internet! This is most impressive! I was born the year A.C.P. began, and because my parents and grandmother watched religiously, I grew up with the show. At one stage, when the last couple of new seasons were airing once a week at night (I'm Australian), old episodes were screened during the day - I've never missed one! When it ended I was soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo miserable - like losing friends, memories, that know? Another T.V. station bought the rights to the name, in order to create a new A.C.P...I watched it, but it was axed very early, and I can't blame 'em! The new series was quite forgetable...I don't want to reveal to much about that (like what happens, who remains, who leaves - and why) just in case, in other parts of the world, A.C.P hasn't ended. To the creator of this page, or anyone else who may have questions, I am someone who is likely to know the answers! i.e. where are all the stars now? what was the new series like? Whatever happened to such and such a character? etc etc. I also taped the finale (here in Australia, it actually ran for 3 and a 1/2 hours because they had 'behind the scenes', reviewing of the weddings, guest stars, deaths, animals used, 'goofs', and interviews with the stars, before and after the two hour screening of the final episode). I also own this really comprehensive manual/albumon the show! I bought years ago, and it appears to have had a very limited release...No one I know has one, or knows of it, and it can't be found at libraries or bookshops...Anyway, it contains detailed biographies of each character (at least a full A4 page each), info on the show in general, loads more, as well as pictures galore!!! I'm so glad I got it!!! Thanks once again for such a good site!!!

Comments: Hi! I am an Aussie living in the Netherlands, where they do NOT show ACP, much to my frustration! It is so great to hear the show is still so popular with the lucky people who CAN watch it! Especially I'm glad to see so many people like Rosemary - she was always my favourite when I used to watch the show in Australia, but never got much media attention or won any awards for the role etc. Great site, keep up the good work!

Comments: Hi Kitty, Any "new" episode summaries coming soon? I've really enjoyed surfing yout ACP pages, and seeing that I'm watching the show in Norway I was hoping to find some info on future episodes (although it might spoil some of the fun...) Keep up the good work! greetings from the frozen north (68deg46min)

Comments: I hate to admit to addiction, but there it is. I came in part way through the show, just as Simon and Vickie were leaving for America. Hopefully Showcase will start over again at the begining when the series finishes, and I'll be able to catch the episodes I've missed. We don't have cable out here in the middle of nowhere, so we have someone in town tape it and pick up the tapes every couple of weeks. Then we just settle in and watch until we've gone through them. Used to watch Neighbors until CFMT stopped showing it, but this is a far superior show, with much better scripts and production values.

Comments: I think you've done a fantastic job with this website. I am a great fan of the series currently shown in repeats at 9:00am weekdays here in Australia. You've done a great tribute to such a entertaining, educational and significant show representing the laid back Aussie lifestyle and people. Thank for having this available

Comments: Love the Website. I enjoyed watching A country practise in Grampian Television in Scotland until they stopped showing it in the middle of episodes in the Summer. Your website has been just what I was looking for to fill in the blanks.

Comments: My husband and I live in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. We have watched Country Practice since it came available here,approx. 2 years ago. We watch it every day and have not missed one show. Some characters come and go, and we miss them. Most recently Luke and Shirley. Are new episodes still being filmed?

Comments: I really enjoyed reading your homepage! Here in Norway "A Country Practise" is sent every weekday at 6.00 PM, and I watch it as often as possible. But I missed the part where Steve died, and did not knoww why she died before today!

Comments: Great site!!!! Thank you so much for putting it all together for us fans. I got hooked on the show on Showcase about a year ago when home sick. My VCR is always on ready and waiting for the show ever since. It is so well done with such supportive characters. Terrence is definately my all time favorite, wish there was one of him near here! Rosemary is just perfect for him and I am really enjoying watching the romance develop between them, it really seems to be true love, friendship and romance. The loss of Steve was the hardest cast member to loose but right now I do miss Bob and Cookie. One thing I would like to know is what is Shane Porteous doing now, and is their a recent picture somewhere? Would love any info. Thanks again for so much good work.

Comments: Hiya! I am from Australia, and Country Practice was my all time favourite show growing up. Here we get reruns at 9am every morning, so i *try* to be awake to watch it. My fave characters were Michael and Jo, they had such chemistry on set. I also live in Epping NSW where the show was shot (in the studio)and used to always bump into various cast members. Anyway great job, this is a fantastic page. Cheers paula mac

Comments: Love the site! I have been searching for this site forever. How is this show such a secret? You are doing a great job keeping us all informed. "A Country Practice" is such a great show, it is easy to see why it was on the air for such a long time. My whole family loves it, and we can't go anywhere (unless we tape it) at 1:00pm! My Mom is the worst! She is so addicted, she won't go on vacation! We went on a two week vacation last year, we had to arrange for people to tape the show before we left, or she wasn't going. Keep up the good work. :)

Comments: I can't believe that I've found others who like "my show" I started watching it on Showcase about two years ago. I was out of work and in a new town. I soon found myself at home everyday at 1:00 so I could watch. I may be going back to work soon but you can bet that I'll be setting the VCR!. Thanks for a great site it's a wealth of info! Pat

However, you have managed to spell his name wrong. It should read Brian Wenzel, instead of Bryan Wenzel. Usually, we find that our last name is spelt wrong. Thank-you for a great site, and keep up the great work xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxxoxoxoxoxox

Comments: This show is a habit I'va had since I was little - and it is impossible to give it up - I have tried several times. My favourite character is the dry-witted Rosemary Prior with her non-dangling participles. Great site - it took some time before I found it though.
