BODYLINE: A dramatisation of the 1932/33 Test cricket series between England and Australia. Played in Australia, the series gained notoriety in Australian and worldwide cricketing history for the fact that the English team applied a bowling technique called leg theory or more commonly, Bodyline. This technique involved bowlers bowling the ball directly at the batsmans body, and resulted in many of the Australian team receiving numerous bruises and injuries, with batsman Bert Oldfield sustaining a cracked skull. The series generated much anger and resentment towards the English team within Australia and seriously damaged Anglo-Australian cricketing relations at the time.

BANGKOK HILTON: Bangkok Hilton is the story of Kat Stanton, an Australian woman searching for her father who, whilst travelling back from London to Australia via Thailand. Kat is tricked into carrying some luggage through Thai customs, only for the police to find drugs in her bag. Kat is sentenced to spend time in the horrific Bangkok Hilton prison. Whilst she endures the terrible conditions inside, Kats lawyer Richard Carlisle and ex-patriot Hal Stanton battle with the authorities to have her freed. From legendary Australian mini-series production house Kennedy Miller, the people behind The Cowra Breakout and Vietnam.

VIETNAM: Set against the backdrop of Beatlemania, Flower-power and LSD induced euphoria, Vietnam is a stunningly powerful re-enactment of the bitterly controversial issue of Australias involvement in what was perceived as an American war. A story with immense power to distress and the magic to move the hardest hearts. From legendary Australian mini-series production house Kennedy Miller, the people behind Bangkok Hilton and The Cowra Breakout.

THE DISMISSAL: The constitutional crisis that emanated from the sacking of the Australian Prime Minister Gough Whitlam on November 11, 1975 still reverberates to this day. The 1983 mini-series from Kennedy Miller brings to life every extra-ordinary detail and still rates as one of the most watched television in Australia. Now for the first time on DVD and unseen for almost 20 years, The Dismissal features one of the best Australian casts ever assembled including Max Phipps, John Meillon, John Stanton, Ruth Cracknell, Bill Hunter, John Hargreaves, Nancy Hayes, Ed Devereaux, Robyn Nevin and many more.

THE DIRTWATER DYNASTY: Dirtwater Dynasty is the story of embittered rivalry, triumph and despair. The life of Richard Eastwick is told in a story spanning three generations and eight decades. Born in the London slums in 1878, he comes to Australia at age 20, with nothing but a handful of courage and a dream. He acquires land, marries and raises a family, wins loyal friends and makes bitter enemies, and builds a land and cattle ranching empire. Both world wars and the economic depression take their toll on his family. But his dream to create a dynasty gives him a reason to continue.

THE COWRA BREAKOUT: In August 1944, 1104 Japanese prisoners of war at the Australian POW camp at Cowra stage a mass breakout. Four guards are killed in the escape, and 231 prisoners die by wounds sustained or suicide, while 334 prisoners are recaptured over the subsequent nine days. From legendary Australian mini-series production house Kennedy Miller, the people behind Bangkok Hilton and Vietnam.
