You Can't See 'Round Corners is an early Australian TV series based on the novel by Jon Cleary, updated to be set during the Vietnam War. It was shot in black and white, and was later adapted into a film version.



This was Rowena Wallace's first professional dramatic TV series. She was recommended by Barry Creyton who was originally going to play the role of Frankie McCoy.[1]

The series garnered controversy on release because of a scene where Frankie runs his hand up Margie's skirt. Wallace says she had no idea Shorter was going to do this, which is why her reaction was so authentic.[1] Many stations around Australia cut the scene.

Peter Weir worked on the show as a production assistant.
