The Adventures of Barry McKenzie

Comedy based on a comic strip by Barry Humphries and Nicholas Garland. An Australian (Barry Crocker) with more than a mild dislike of the Poms finds himself in dear old Blighty.

Comedy about Barry McKenzie, a die-hard Aussie who is sent to England by his family, accompanied by his eccentric aunt Edna Everage. Loud-mouthed, lager-crazy Bazza encounters a totally alien culture and becomes embroiled in a series of strange vicissitudes, from being pressured to marry the unattractive daughter of an aristocratic-but-penniless family to being kidnapped by a group of hippies and re-encountering an Australian childhood sweetheart who now lives a different lifestyle in London.
