An interesting Watch
8 July 2003 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I didnt watch this when it aired thinking it would be boring. I was studying for exams and put the dvd on for background and was shocked. It is a clever piece that inspires all viewers. The acting is first class and production is wonderful. This is one of the greatest aussie dramas ever.
