View Full Version : Patrol Boat TV series (Australia)

I'm looking for an old TV series called Patrol Boat, well I think so anyway.
It was set on either the Currently Freemantle or the old Attack Class Patrol boat. I think it was filmed in the 1980's and aired on the SBS or ABC.
If any one has any idea of where I could find this series it would be great.
once again Cheers

Now there's an ABC series I didn't mind watching, think it was on right before Chopper Squad...or the other way around. It use to air as the last program before the ABC would play the last post before closing transmission for the night. (1979/80 -ish?)
Andrew McFarlane was the skipper, Grant Dodwell was in it too. Best episode I think was called "Tango Victor" where they play wargames on a hill and some of the enemy army play cause mischief.
As for finding it....hmmm, maybe the ABC Shop in your nearest capital city?

It first aired in 1979 and was onboard an Attack Class boat. They later changed to the then new Fremantle Class which is now bein replaced by the Armidale Class.
Let me know if you find it anywhere, would like to see it again.

I loved watching this. I will see if the ABC shop can trace it for us. There is also a new series coming out about Patrol Boats. I saw an advert about upcoming shows for 2007 on ABC.
