A host of outstanding Aussie actors star in this loud, proud, fair dinkum yarn about the original "great Aussie battlers", the Rudds, an unconventional farming family of charming half-wits who survive on boiled pumpkin and parrot stew and half-baked get-rich schemes.
When Dad Rudd (Leo McKern) moves his family out into the scrub to 'select' 150 acres of fly-blown land, he discovers he's surrounded by all sorts of vermin - reptiles, insects and Riley (Barry Otto), his miserable politician neighbour. Dad decides to beat Riley at his own game and stand for parliament. Dad Rudd M.P. The Farmers Friend!
"Dad and Dave - On Our Selection" is a "pioneering" comedy based on the larrikin yarns of Steele Rudd. Full of bush brawls, harvest dances, outback wedding celebrations and bloody good laughs, it's about a family who didn't give a damn about the authorities or the harsh conditions - and made this country what it is today. TOO RIGHT!
