Actor Joe Hasham and TV historian Andrew Mercado discuss how in 1972, Number 96 became the first TV show in the world to feature a full range of LGBT characters.

Including heroic gay lawyer Don Finalyson (Joe Hasham), bisexual Dudley Butterfield (Chard Hayward) and transgender showgirl Robin Ross (trans actress Carlotta), Number 96 was a landmark in on-screen queer representation. A special camptastic episode of Number 96 will screen along with a brand new documentary featuring Shane “Courtney Act” Jenek, author Benjamin Law, scriptwriter Sarah Walker, the legendary Carlotta, the iconic Michael Kirby and Hollywood superstar Keiynan Lonsdale that will reveal how Australian TV was truly Outrageous!

This screening includes a special in-depth discussion between actor Joe Hasham and TV historian Andrew Mercado.
