Had a budget in excess of $15 million, making this the largest television mini-series ever made in Australia.See more »
Will:I don't know that I can get us across.
Mary Bryant:Of course you don't, it's a risk, but you've gone from Cornwall across to Spain - the same distance, you said it yourself, and you'll be the one to get us to Timor.
Will:I didn't exactly do that - sail across to Spain, I didn't exactly do that. I can read a chart better than a book, I can hug a coastline, feel a boat around rocks, but I've never taken a boat outside of land in my life, and I don't intend to now. Listen to it, it's our last stroke of luck and its telling us to stay here.

This mini-series is a must see!, 12 November 2005
Author: fiery_phoenix89

Mary Bryant was a remarkable person and this mini-series starred remarkable actors who held together a wonderfully moving recollection of a dark time in the history of Brittan and the beginnings of Australia. It frightens me that my country was essentially founded with such atrocities and in such inhumane ways. I knew of the injustices that would later come about with more force for the Aboriginal people, but scarcely thought of the convicts that were dumped there. I had never really looked at the first fleet the way I did when watching the series, it opened my eyes and those of all of us who've seen it, that I'm sure. All in all there were top film making and superb character portrayals in a very important story to remember of the right of each human being to live and to have redemption from there (often petty) mistakes. I will be listening up for Alex O'Lachlan's name in the future and am sure to follow Romola's acting career with deep interest.
