In 1983 Nevill co-produced and presented a six part TV series called 'Healers, Quacks or Mystics' - A personal exploration of alternative medicine which was broadcast on ABC TV. In its day, it was a break-through series, introducing alternative medicine to many for the first time.
Nevill has supplied episodes digitised from old VHS copies that will be uploaded to his Vimeo channel over the coming months. Even though the quality is not fantastic, the series presents an historic look at alternative medicine, particularly in Australia.
