One of the Best Series ever to come out of Australia.
23 March 2004 | by (Hong Kong) – See all my reviews

This is a magnificent series that was a collaboration between the BBC and an Australian Company, unfortunately this is also the reason it has not gone to video which is a great pity as it is undoubtedly one of the best works concerning Australian Bush Rangers, the Aussie equivalent of American Outlaws that has ever been made, As far as I know it only ran once but it completely hooked me and I watched all 13 parts. I have also read the biography on Ben Hall and the series is fairly true to what is known about Ben. Jon Finch plays the title role very convincingly as does Evin Crowley as his long suffering wife. The story follows Ben, a small time horse farmer, down the path he took as bushranger. The sets are excellent examples of how Australia looked at the time and all the characters develop well during the 13 hours of screen play. It is shown from both sides points of view and although most will remain feeling sorry for Ben there are many occasions when you also feel sorry for the police. It will be a great shame if this is never re-released.
