The Sullivans


The Sullivans

The Sullivans followed the life of a Melbourne family through the years of World War II. Set in the suburb of Camberwell, Dave and Grace Sullivan were parents to three sons and one daughter—John, Tom, Dave and Kitty.

The life of the family as it struggled to deal with the world in wartime was the basis of the popular series, but the extended family and friends also played a key role in the storylines, such as the local pub, the local corner store and a variety of neighbours. With three sons and a variety of in-laws, cousins and friends away at War, The Sullivans featured war action sequences in almost every theatre of the world conflict.

The high point of drama—and considered one of the turning point of the series—was the death of Grace Sullivan in a London air raid. The series finished after a seven series run when most of the original cast had left the series and in the storylines, the War was over and the family had settled in a new life in the post-War era
