Six-hour miniseries written and produced by Patricia Payne and Wilton Schiller, adapted from the Marcus Clarke classic novel.

Mark Twain deemed Marcus Clarke's powerful story of the horrors and degradation of the penal system "brilliant and fascinating".  As gripping as The Count of Monte Cristo and Les Miserable, as dramatic as A Tale of Two Cities and Anastasia, as adventurous as Mutiny on the Bounty, it is a classic.
