The story of the 1998 waterfront battle between the unions and Patrick Corporation,a prominent employer within the industry .
This story is a recreation of the battle of the 1998 waterfront dispute between the unions and Patrick Corporation, in Australia. Even if you are not a student of political history, or think the storyline is a bit dry, you can still enjoy the confrontation between the major players of the day, superbly performed by an array of the cream of Australian actors. The acting and the production levels are so good that I didn't notice the time go by watching it , and I was sorry it was over, and wishing there was more. There are four episodes of approximately 1 hour each, which gives the viewer an insight into four respective characters(real people central to the historical events). I gave it a 9 out of 10 vote.
