Storyline

The approach of a solar eclipse draws various people to Alice Springs, an Australian town surrounded by primitive tribal outback, where it can be best observed. Constable Hugh Delaney's son, Toby, and his partners expect a bus-load of Germans, but a crazy truck driver destroys their hotel, so he improvises an 'adventurous bush trip'. Future Med student Matt Marione takes the train searching for lost medicinal treasures from the aborigines and finds a mysterious lover aboard. 'Pellican' jogs all the way to Ayers Rock, accompanied by his wife and her grumpy friend who wants him out of the way. Former rock lead singer Jack Jaffers, who deserted his band's reunion to revisit the desert where they had their first success, joins them. Written by KGF Vissers

Any chance to bring back The Alice?
16 April 2006 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed The Alice, seen as a serial on TV1 New Zealand. From the start: the introduction of the characters and why they landed up or were in Alice. I loved the colour of the location; the music, the script and the acting. The story lines gave good scope for further and/or new developments. The actors "grew: as the serial continued,and I cared about them. There was a kindliness about it: a relief from crime/mayhem, murder, nastiness; but not soft, not sloppy. We had a real sense of loss when the programme was suspended during the Commonwealth Games. The time slot was later than peak viewing even at the start, then was moved to 11.10pm! Thank goodness for video recording! Very much better viewing than Blue Heelers, a serial that continued for years. A real shame The Alice was canned!
