44 Days: 75 Squadron and the fight for Australia
Michael tells the extraordinary story of a tiny group of raw Australian pilots holding off the Japanese in the skies of New Guinea for a crucial and heroic six weeks in early 1942. A true but unknown story from our greatest conflict.
The days when entertainment was live to air live again when comic legend Michael (Big Mickey) Veitch and handsome youngster Simon (The Kid) Oats don their double-breasted dinner suits to bring you this hilarious tribute to the glamour, the style and, let’s face it, the sheer political incorrectness that was the pre-television era and radio was king!

Thomas Veitch and his cello have done a magnificent job of capturing the voyage as it sat in the hearts of those on board the fateful Ticonderoga. Accompanied at times by the haunting vocal of Rose Hampton the family storytelling continues.
