MyAnna Buring in Banished.

.

Banished, the first commission from Australian cable channel BBC First, premiered on BBC2 last week, winning its timeslot but failing to impress many UK critics.

Reviewers derided the First Fleet saga created by Jimmy McGovern as soppy,. heavy-handed and, in parts, unintentionally funny.

The 7-part drama, produced by See-Saw Films and McGovern and producing partner Sita Williams, stars David Wenham as Governor Arthur Phillip, a pragmatic idealist who hopes to turn the penal colony into land of opportunity for all.. It will debut on BBC First in June.

Joseph Milson plays his nemesis Major Ross, who believes the only chance of survival is to rule with an iron fist. Ryan Corr and Adam Nagaitis play privates, Ewen Bremner is a pious priest with Genevieve O.Reilly as his selfless wife and Brooke Harman as Governor Phillip.s housekeeper. Cast as convicts are Orla Brady, Joanna Vanderham, »
