On 9th of November 1983 two Australians, Kevin Barlow and Geoff Chambers were arrested at Penang Airport in Malaysia carrying 179 grams of heroin, a crime which in Malaysia carries a mandatory sentence of death. Dadah Is Death (A Long Way From Home) is the true story of Barbara Barlow's desperate attempt to save her son from the hangman's rope - a courageous effort that involved impassioned pleas to President Reagan, The British Prime Minister, and even the Pope. By July 1986 this international struggle had seemed to reach a hopeless conclusion and all that was left was a mother's love for her son.Written by

Makes Kevin Barlow look like an angel !!
This is a sensational movie/mini series. It was released on VHS although you would be very lucky to find a copy anywhere.
ALthough it is great and the acting is fantastic, there is one problem with this show. It is very bias towards Kevin Barlow and it constantly makes Geoff Chambers look like the bad guy.
I think that someone forgot to tell Barbara Barlow (his mother) that it is against the law to traffic drugs !!! I mean did she really think that because he is her son, they should change the rules for him and not everyone else ?? That is the sad part of this film, other than this it is sensational and if you are lucky enough to see it then you will enjoy it, i can assure you.
