The music by Peter Best sensitively underscores the drama and sadness inherent in these circumstances, and the story follows Bert and Wilson and Lily, shunted to Australia into a life of deprivation and extreme hardship. Their courageous response to their dire conditions is the underlying drama of the story.

This mini-series followed on the heels of one of the ABC's highest rating mini-series ever, Brides of Christ. This one also rated through the roof, and moved audiences to tears in a story about orphans sent from England to Australia, beginning in the 1930s.

  Also available by Peter Best:  The Heroes / Heroes II - The Return, Rebel, Muriel's Wedding, Doing Time for Patsy Cline, Devil In The Flesh / We of the Never Never, Dad and Dave: On Our Selection and Crocodile Dundee (1986).
