Top QUALITY TV Drama at its best-Story based on real events.....
15 November 2013 | by zumaondekiSee all my reviews

Just had the privilege to watch this great piece of Australian television drama and what a great job done by all the cast I could not find any flaws in the acting whatsoever.Having lived through the era from the 1950's to now (2013) and knowing of these larger than life characters which in many ways are part of Australian history I was so impressed with this production,such praise from me is unusual as many regard me as quite harsh on Australian produced shows' ,this is the exception as my fist ever score of a 9 stars for a TV series reflects........like good stories that are Real? Then go watch >>> Power Games.......
