Hoyts Edgley, 1985.

John Sexton, Co-Producer of Burke & Wills: The Movie.

"Very few Australians know anything about Burke and Wills"

"People think they do, but really they've been taught in a most boring way in school which encourages them to think of these people as losers. When you find out what was really involved in what they were doing ... it is a fascinating yarn of human achievement, of courage, greed and treachery; of romance and malice ... it's a rich human yarn and I think it is inspiring."


John Sexton, Co-Producer of Burke & Wills: The Movie.

"I realise the outside world doesn't care about Burke and Wills.
They know nothing about them.
"

"What we hope they will care about in this film is the fact that it is a bloody good story.
It's a human story and they will see it as an epic."
