By Far One of the Best
9 February 2002 | by (New york) – See all my reviews

The Australian mini-series "Against the Wind" was by far one of the best I have ever seen on television. Like others, I would love to see this true and heart-warming story repeated which it hasn't been for years. Since a video was not released, perhaps PBS can be urged to re-run it.
