Ok it might of been a film. Not 100 % sure.....sorry. confused

It was about children being sent to live in Australia.

I think it was set in Liverpool and seem to remember "The Liverbirds" being in the title or theme somewhere, but a google search only comes up with the sitcom.

It was about a boy 13-14 ish and a girl of the same age. I think the girl had blonde hair.

They were seperated when they arrived in Australia - sent to different families but managed to find each other somehow.

Sorry this is very vague, but randomly popped in to my head earlier, and has been annoying me all night.

Can't help you, sorry. But I loved some the Aussie kids stuff back in the day. Anybody remember Spit McPhee? From Bendigo Boys Home smile And the Children of Fire Mountain, think that was from NZ.

And for early 90s reality, you can't go past Sylvania Waters.

Can't help, sorry. But do you remember Round the Twist? That was Australian.

"have you ever, ever felt like this? When strange things happen, are you going round the twist?"

DVD of it

Handsfulloffun Thu 18-Oct-12 22:00:39

No not The Sulivans - thanks though Going, I think it might have been a short drama not neccesarily aimed at children - I remember being very blush at the sex scenes.

Handsfulloffun Thu 18-Oct-12 22:01:38

Pugwall was amazing! And his sister, Marmaloid who was always annoying him.
