Episode Notes

Since the 1980s, Lee has described Australia to itself via the medium of commercial television drama, working on Sons and Daughters as a writer, rewriting the first episode of Home And Away, before creating Always Greener, Packed to the Rafters and Winners & Losers.

His most recent success is A Place to Call Home, which survived cancellation on Seven to be reborn on Foxtel.

His next project, a “glorious super soap” is already in the works for Seven.

Here Lee discusses the poor state of drama on the ABC, why there is not enough mentoring in the industry, and the problems of dealing with fans on Twitter.
