Equitainment's Comments

I watched this last night and it's fabulous! The first thing I noticed was the lovely clear print of the film. Some of shows from a decade or more ago are a little bit fuzzy, but not so with this one. Crystal clear and great sound too.

It's also I show I didn't realise was ever made. The late 1990's isn't that far back but I don't ever remember it being on the telly ... it certainly snuck in under my radar. I had read the book when I was a teenager but how wonderful it is to see it all bought to life.

I would recommend this one without hesitation. What an entertaining way to learn about our own Australian settlement history.

Product Overview

A first-class Australian historical mini-series based on the best-selling memoirs of Dame Mary Durack, Kings In Grass Castlesis an epic drama tracing three generations of a pioneeringfamily and their tumultuous settlement in colonial Australia.

Fleeing the Irish potato famine of 1853, the Durack family search for a better life in a harsh land of infinite possibilities, rich with rewards ready for the taking.

Led by patriarch Patsy Durack (AFI Award winner Stephen Dillane, John Adams), they set about developing the extraordinary Kimberley Region, establishing a dynamic network of sheep and cattle properties throughout the countryside.

Throughout their pioneering endeavours, the Duracks forge friendships with the many local indigenous people, including enigmatic Burrakin (David Ngoombujarra, Australia) and Jimmy (Ernie Dingo, Bran Nue Dae), discovering the severe hardship andtragedy of a people suddenly removed from their ancestral lands.

Also featuring James Fox (Sherlock Holmes), Fionulla Flanagan (Lost), and from the award-winning writer of Against The Wind and The Dirtwater Dynasty, Kings In Grass Castles is an epic story of family history set against the turbulence of national pride.
