A favorite mini-series I'd love to see again
5 January 1999 | by (SoCal) – See all my reviews

I saw this mini-series in the late 70's and fell in love with the characters and story, which told the tale of English and Irish convicts transported to early Australia. It was extremely romantic and had plenty of adventure for non-romos. If it were available on video, I'd buy it. It is a really g ood story.
