‘Steele Rudd’ was the the pseudonym of Drayton born Arthur Hoey Davis (1868-1935). His now famous sketches of country life, first serialised in the Bulletin, filmed in 1920 and heard on radio between 1932-52 made his characters Dad and Dave into Australian cultural icons!

On Our Selection follows the trials of Dad Rudd in his fight to beat drought, fire and flood alongside the perpetual struggle against his greedy but influential neighbour John Carey.
