Great Drama and Suspense - 10/10
18 April 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Well this mini series is definitely a CLASSIC !!! The actor playing Dennis Connor (Mark Hammond) was a hero of mine as he lead me to believe I could be Spiderman if I was bitten by a radio-active spider..

The suspense and Drama was "edge of the seat" and certainly gave accurate insight into this historic event..

I couldn't help but feel sorry for Dennis Connor though as was forced to face "the music" (without giving anything away).

But even someone like me who is SO NON-PATRIOTIC couldn't help but feel proud to be an Aussie by the end of it..

Remember Bob Hawke's statement " Any employer who sacks a worker for not turning up to work today is a bum" *sigh*

A must see -- the only problem is... locating a copy ??????? Ideas anyone ?
