This was one of the best Aussie mini series I'd ever seen, and finally it has been released on DVD!! Don't miss it. Robyn Nevin's outstanding performance as Shasta is Academy Award winning material. She cracks me up with her brilliant outbursts and facial expressions. The first two episodes are slightly dated but the rest of the series will have you hooked if for no other reason than to watch Shasta age and become more bitter yet funnier with her taunts and criticisms of everything and everyone. At the same time you see the underlying reason for her critical opinions and feel for her. Her performance has stuck in my mind since the show was first aired on TV back in 1980 and finally seeing it again I was not disappointed, it is as brilliant as I had remembered it. Best Christmas present I received this year without a doubt.
