Parody of historical epics that focuses on real-life Australian explorers William John Wills and Robert O'Hara Burkes, who tragically tried to cross the Australian continent from the south, to the north, a distance of 3,250 km.
This 10-part TV mini-series follows an Australian family affected by the Vietnam War. Nicole Kidman plays a young woman who becomes an anti-war activist when she sees what is happening in Vietnam after the Australians become involved. Set in the 1960s through the early 1970s, the series shows the shifting attitude of Australians towards the war and the lack of humanity towards the Vietnamese.
Nicole does indeed play a brilliant part in this production. As she waits for her conscientious objector boyfriend to be released from prison, her expressions are priceless. The look of concern, relief then her happiness are very touching. Her strong red curly hair reinforcing the inner strength of her character. The music was also well matched with the haunting 'Woodstock' from Joni Mitchell finishing off what is a milestone in Australian Television and probably the first serious look at this wonderful actress and a bearing on what was to come. I remember telling anyone who would listen to keep an eye out for this outstanding young actress after seeing her performance.
