Logo (November 15, 1971-1972)

Visuals: The text "A SCREEN GEMS AUSTRALIA PRODUCTION" appears on a black background which zooms out after a fraction of a second, revealing itself to be a dot. Two boomerangs appear from the top left and bottom right corners of the screen and surround the dot, morphing into the parallelograms of the familiar "S" logo, while "SCREEN GEMS" appears on the bottom of the formed "S".

Technique: Cel animation.

Audio: A majestic brass theme that interpolates elements of "Waltzing Matilda" and the familiar "S from Hell" theme.

Availability: It was resurfaced on one of the two pilots of The Graham Kennedy Show, which dates to 1972.
