Screenwriter Cliff Green has died a few days before his 86th birthday. He was best known for adapting the 1967 novel Picnic at Hanging Rock into a screenplay,, which was directed by Peter Weir. He won the AWGIE award, and wrote the first Australian drama nominated for an Emmy. He also wrote episodes of The Flying Doctors and Matlock Police (not to be confused with Abe Simpson’s favourite TV cop). He was a unique pick for The Perfect 10 (but he wears a twelve?).
