The Dish is classic Australian stuff and the film that singlehandedly put the Australian small town of Parkes on the map... until the Elvis Festival of course.

Led by Cliff Buxton (Sam Neill), this lovely film tells the story of the Moon landing and the extraordinary role the Parkes satellite dish in receiving and relaying the iconic images of Neil Armstrong's giant leap for mankind to the world.

In true Australian style, things don't always go as clockwork and this group of eccentric scientists who are responsible for manning a satellite dish inauspiciously located on a remote Australian sheep farm, struggle to overcome a series of mishaps to fulfil their place in this gigantic puzzle.

Great characters and a great story bring this unique film to life under the deft hand of the Working Dog team who are responsible for some of the best loved contemporary Australian TV and cinema.
