#TBT - Can anyone tell me about this 70s Australian tv drama called 'The Box'

I was trolling around youtube and found a clip from this Australian 70s drama called 'The Box.'  I know nothing about this show, but all I can say is that even in the 70s, America was beat out by other countries when it comes to depictions of gays:

I wasn't allowed to watch The Box in the 70's - but knew about it. The other show to have the first regular gay character was Number 96!

70's Australia was very homophobic, so I guess this was a big deal. I couldn't imagine my father watching this without making some derogatory comment about poofters.
