"Bartons on the Web" is an ode, a 'thank you' and a pedestal to the people that worked on and starred on one of the most underrated and often forgotten Australian children's drama series out there. Its goal is to give the show the love and attention it deserves, and aims to be the biggest resource on C/o The Bartons and all associated works available anywhere, online or offline.

A
BIG thank you goes out to Olivia, who played Elly on the show; she told me a lot of things I didn't yet know, and also provided the majority of the information on this site! Look out for an interview with her soon.

An equally big thank you goes out to Jocelyn Moorhouse for agreeing to
an interview! I'm still trying to wrap my head around getting to interview her and am very grateful for the opportunity!

On a final note before I let you dive in: if you'd like to get in touch with me, you can
do so here. This site's mission and future plans combined with a site FAQ can be found right over here.

Enjoy yourself and let me know what's missing, wrong or (hopefully) very right!

*OK, if you REALLY want to, you can be "initiated" by taking a spin on the Hills hoist, answering questions about The Bartons, before I allow you in. Please use your own Hills hoist and send in pics as proof. =)

Where did all the pics and clips go? :(
(February 2021)

I've recently been in contact with the ABC. In those communications, ABC has indicated that images and clips that are owned by ABC have to be licenced.

This made me take a difficult decision, one that has been seriously weighing down my mood the last few days: I've decided to remove the images and clips of which I'm certain ABC is the rights holder. That's all of the clips from episodes, the stills and all of the pics taken from press kits or other promotional materials. This unfortunately includes most of the pics that Olivia donated.

I fear that ignoring the comment ABC has made, would lead to an official takedown demand. In the worst case scenario, that would not only put the site in jeopardy, but also increase the risk of legal action by the ABC against me personally. At the very least it would make talks about officially licencing (some of) the content a lot more difficult and unpleasant.

Meanwhile, I've asked ABC about licencing the images they own the copyright too. That would most likely be limited to the images in the press/media kit. If and when that licence is granted, those images will return. ABC has told me the licence fee for footage will be high, so I'm not counting on the clips returning. I'm currently awaiting their response.

I'd like to stress that ABC has not threatened me with legal action at this point. But reading their comments, the message in my opinion was loud and clear.


An interview with the person we have to thank for it all: Jocelyn Moorhouse!
(October 2020)


Wow
, I'm still trying to wrap my head around her saying "yes"… I'm so grateful that she did!

Jocelyn Moorhouse not only created our beloved Bartons, she also wrote and directed the short film, wrote five episodes of the series and the book.

So what better way to kick off the site than an interview with her?

You can jump straight to it by following this link. This and other interviews (there are more in the pipeline; stay tuned!) can be found under the Interviews section in the menu.

Royce Craven interview now up!
(October 2020)


Royce Craven
is one of the composers and producers of the shows music. He was kind enough to let me interview him about his music, his time on the show and what he's been up to since then.

Did you know he built a plane? Or designs really cool software for music production using synthesizers? Well, I didn't, but what I do know he's (co-)responsible for that excellent music, which has been stuck in my head for 75% of my life now!

You can find the interview linked on the CREW page (in the SERIES section) or directly under the INTERVIEWS section in the menu.

Or you can click right here.
