its beginning as a radio production facility in 1945, the company
has grown into a television production powerhouse that now has over
3,000 hours of top-quality and multi-award winning television programming

company has changed radically over the years. With Hector Crawford
at the helm, Crawfords produced a string of domestic prime time
drama successes, and became an on-the-job training ground for many
of Australia's most famous performers, producers, writers, directors
and other behind-the-scenes luminaries. [You can trace many of their
names on this site - see how the smash success of Nick Giannopoulos
in The Wog Boy had its roots in Acropolis Now, the classic Crawfords
Productions sitcom of the 80's and 90's!] The Sullivans was seen in
over 70 countries in the 70's and 80's and when Australia went to
colour in 1972, production boomed! Later, The Flying Doctors would
carry the Crawfords name worldwide. With the passing of Hector Crawford
in 1991, Australia lost a great showman and entrepreneur, but the
company continued to prosper under the aegis of Bruce Gordon, the
Sydney-born producer once referred to as "the dean of international
television", and the owner of Australia's WIN television network.
Crawfords Productions is a flexible, dynamic production outfit that
makes programs for the world. The recent slate of outstanding television
drama includes State Coroner, Tribe, Warriors of Virtue II, the children's series', The Saddle Club, Guinevere Jones and currently in production - series two of The Saddle Club. Crawfords Productions is actively
developing creative partnerships with respected international producers
and production companies.
