HOME I S WHERE THE HEART I S

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - TV Guide - - News -

PART­ING is such sweet sor­row, when the com­pany has been so won­der­ful, the writ­ing so brave and the pro­duc­tion’s im­pact on its au­di­ence so pro­found.

It was no small feat that fans of this show played a ma­jor part in its re­vival, af­ter be­ing dropped by Seven in 2014. View­ers em­braced the good peo­ple of In­ver­ness and the drama around Ash Park; the fam­ily pile of the Blighs – led by ma­tri­arch Elis­a­beth and her man­nered and gen­tle son Ge­orge.

The se­ries took on some im­por­tant is­sues, break­ing down prej­u­dices and taboos that in some in­stances still pre­vail in real small towns around Aus­tralia.

Be­van Lee proved his mas­tery of ro­mance and drama, evok­ing so much em­pa­thy for his char­ac­ters; even the vil­lain­ous ones.
