Entertaining Aussie drama serial in a great ABC tradition
10 March 2019 | by guauenSee all my reviews

The ABC is Australia's public broadcaster with one hundred years of service providing news and entertainment across this vast island continent. 'The Heights' is a good fit in a great tradition of ABC serials like 'Blue Hills', 'Bellbird' and 'GP'. A light and entertaining 30 minute relationship drama series, it reflects the diverse life of multi-cultural inner city Australia. It may be a little 'nudging' for some still wedded to a 'white Australia' ethos. Maybe that was intended. Set in Perth, it could just as well be Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney or Brisbane. After the first 10 episodes, I am finding it lots of fun to watch. The diversity of roles and the focus given to strong women and young people is very refreshing. For me, its best element is excellent writing. Thanks to: Hannah Carroll Chapman, Romina Accurso, Peter Mattessi, Megan Palinkas, Nick King, Clare Atkins, Niki Aken, Dot West, Magda Wozniak, Mithila Gupta, Tracey Defty-Rashid, Larissa Behrendt, Miley Tunnecliffe, Katie Beckett and Melissa Lee Speyer. Well done! And grateful thanks to developers Warren Clarke and Que Minh Luu.
