I stumbled across this delightful Australian mini TV series by accident, but I am so glad I did. It is a well scripted and wonderfully executed mini TV drama. Gordon Jackson gives his usual polished performance along with many others. Point to note, if this was indeed Catherine McClements debut TV role, she carried it off superbly. Her performance was that of someone who had been in front of a camera all her life. Maturity beyond her then very young years. It is a simple story of first love overcoming bigotry and hatred in a small community in Australia in 1938. There is little to dislike about it even if the ending is not quite what you would have wanted.
