Watching a shot setup. Note the cramped space and the low ceiling in the makeshift studio at GTV9. From left to right: Mike Browning (Camerman), Denzil Howson (with back to the camera), Clare Braybrook holding clapper (Production Assistant/Continuity), Ormonde Douglas (back to camera).

Setting up for a shot in which the Sherrif’s men (Tony Evans and Ernie Carroll) capture Gerry. Here we see the “real” Gerry being positioned behind a table.
In this shot, Gerry has been replaced by a human double (John Field) wearing a latex mask so that the normally immobile Gerry can be shown walking. This technique was used in many episodes of “The Adventures of Gerry Gee”.
And here is the action where Gerry is being carried away by the Sherrif’s men.
The prisoners in close up. The soldier in the middle is Ernie Carroll, co-producer with Denzil of the Tarax Show. After the demise of the Tarax Show, Ernie went on to create Ozzie Ostrich who remained a popular Channel Nine character from the 1970s through to the 1990s.
