A Police Officer, who is also Aboriginal, arrives in outback central Australia from a big city. He begins to solve local major crimes. Not only through his intelligence, as he is highly educated, but also using skills he has learnt from his Aboriginal culture.Written by
There was controversy as the result of the fact that James Laurenson, a white man, was hired to play Inspector Bonaparte. However, the producers had mounted a search for a mixed-race Aborigine and had not been able to find one despite many weeks of searching. Even more ironically, James Laurenson was Tasmanian, and his ancestors had killed off the last aboriginal Tasmanian centuries earlier. See more »
The previous reviewer can't have seen it. Somewhat off-beat drama that aired late at night on UK's ITV networks. The aboriginal dancing wasn't performed by Laurenson, but by Australian native actor David Gulpilil on the end titles.
And, yes, there was a racist theme running through it all.
A lost atmosoheric aussie gem that needs revisiting.
