Sarah and Ge­orge go pub­lic with their re­la­tion­ship while Regina tries to warn them about Sir Richard’s evil ways

TV Soap - - Inside -

Sarah and Ge­orge brace for fam­ily and po­lit­i­cal back­lash on A Place to Call Home.

Ge­orge and Sarah have thrown cau­tion to the wind and are trav­el­ling to Can­berra to­gether de­spite be­ing un­mar­ried with a child. But Par­lia­ment’s re­ac­tion to the union pales in com­par­i­son to the trouble they could face when they refuse to be­lieve Regina’s claims that Sir Richard plans to de­stroy the Bligh fam­ily.

While it is well known that Ge­orge (Brett Climo) is in a re­la­tion­ship with “the other woman” and has a child with her it is a very hush­hush sit­u­a­tion. The morals of the time mean that though Ge­orge and Sarah’s (Marta Dus­sel­dorp) sit­u­a­tion seems scan­dalous no one bats an eyelid if you keep it pri­vate.

Sarah finds her­self grow­ing ever fear­ful of the out­rage they might en­counter when she gets to Can­berra and even tries to back out. But Ge­orge won’t hear of it — they are go­ing to stand united as a fam­ily no mat­ter what.

But re­al­ity soon sets in when the cou­ple at­tends an em­bassy func­tion. While there they bump into Prime Min­is­ter Robert Men­zies (Alan Dearth) who is ap­palled by Sarah’s pres­ence at the party. It im­me­di­ately im­pacts Ge­orge’s ca­reer when the speech he was due to make that night is can­celled.

That could ac­tu­ally be the least of their wor­ries be­cause Sir Richard (Mark Lee) makes a shock ap­pear­ance at the event. It fol­lows an alarm­ing con­fronta­tion with Regina (Jenni Baird) who is ex­tremely des­per­ate for Ge­orge and Sarah to be­lieve her that Sir Richard is up to no good.

Regina has tried to make Ge­orge un­der­stand that he is just Sir Richard’s pup­pet. She has re­vealed all the de­spi­ca­ble things Sir Richard has done so far to the Bligh fam­ily and how the me­dia mogul has been us­ing her to get what he wants.

UNITED FORCE Sarah (Marta Dus­sel­dorp) and Ge­orge (Brett Climo) go to a posh event in Can­berra, de­spite peo­ple frown­ing on their sit­u­a­tion. Sun­days at 8.30pm on
