Australian western set on the Northern Territory frontier in the 1920s, where justice itself is put on trial when an aged Aboriginal farmhand shoots a white man in self-defense and goes on the run as a posse gathers to hunt him down.
Four-part mini-series telling the true story of Australia's most famous bushranger, Ned Kelly. Portraying his childhood and apprenticeship with bushranger Harry Power, the formation of the Kelly Gang, the shoot-out at Stringybark Creek, the hold-ups and years on the run. Culminating in the siege at Glenrowan, the trial and his inevitable fate.Written by
Found this DVD at local library, could not remember if I watched it when it first came out in 1980, but in 2017 I thoroughly enjoyed it.
John Jarrett was excellent in the role of Ned Kelly, along with all the supporting cast as well. It easily beats any cinema release on Kelly, by divulging into why kelly took the actions he did. The Jeliderie letters are composed, Gerard Kennedy makes an appearance in the first episode as Harry Power and Aaron Sherritt is in the series. It's the most realistic version yet of this story.
Highly Recommend it.
