The resemblance between Richard Roxburgh and Roger Rogerson is uncanny, to say the least, and is the most startling feature of the many associated with the production. The attention to detail in the series recreated the era beautifully, and for anyone who had followed the actual events upon which the script is based, they could be forgiven for thinking they were witnessing a documentary filmed with a secret camera, so outstanding was the writing, directing, production and acting by all the players responsible for getting this television masterpiece to the screen. The release in its state of origin of this program was delayed for years for legal reasons, but it did not date in the slightest, TV gold amongst the dross.
