A Good Australian Mini Series

"This package also includes Fields of Fire II & III which almost makes the price justified.
Set in the Australian Sugar Cane Fields during the 1940s, this series follows the lives of a group of seasonal cane cutters. Being a TV mini series with a limited budget, the acting, props and special effects are not that great, but the setting and storyline help to make up for these shortfalls. Fields of Fire I is by far the best, with the quality of the others dimishing as the amount of subject matter available reduces. On the positive side, the actors seem to improve as they gain experience (Although, I am not aware of any that have made it to mainstream Australian TV or film). Australian coloquialisms are smeared on thick, and although most of the themes are partly accurate of the times, they should be taken with a grain of salt.
In summary, if you are going to purchase an Australian TV mini-series, then this is one of the better ones."
