Cast & Crew
The first made-for-cable miniseries to be shown in this country, this eight-hour saga set in turn-of-the-century Australia, directed in alternate segments by George Miller (not the one who did "Mad Max" and "The Road Warrior," but the director of "The Man From Snowy River") and Pino Amenta, follows the fortunes of an independent-minded young woman who invests her inheritance in a riverboat and falls in love with the riverman who runs it. Popular young Australian actress Sigrid Thornton (the female lead in Miller's "The Man From Snowy River") is Philadelphia Gordon, the first woman paddlesteamer captain on Australia's River Murray, and John Waters, best known in this country as the male star of "The Getting of Widsom" and "Breaker Morant" is the devil-may-care Brenton Edwards.
