Podcast: ABC Overnights – Films With or About Children

Night of the Hunter

Returning to the ABC Studios in Sydney for the first time since May, Richard Gray joined ABC Overnights host Rod Quinn for a chat about bad movies. Celebrating (or commiserating?) the current school holidays, we chat about films about children or classics made for children.


From The Sound of Music and Lord of the Flies to The Goonies and The Night of the Hunter (pictured), there are plenty to draw from. Listen as Richard fumbles his way through half-remembered films, spouts clichés and pretends to know far more than he actually does.

Once again we need to thank Rod for the invite on the show, and producer Mawunyo Gbogbo of course! We’ve been appearing on ABC Overnights semi-regularly, and you can find most of our previous appearances here.
