The DVD shown is not for the great Australian Mini-Series, but for another film, once called "Water Under The Bridge", but now known as "Save it For Later".
The Australian mini-series was, in my opinion, the best acted, most moving drama ever shown on Australian television. It managed the almost impossible trick of being extremely moving and yet unsentimental at the same time. it features a truly great performance by Robyn Nevin.The drama of life between the two world wars builds to a climax where a heartbreaking choice is offered to the young man who is the story's protagonist ... the last scenes of this story have haunted me since this series was first shown in 1981. It is overdue for a DVD release.
