Australia breaks England’s Masterpiece Theatre hegemony with this excellent season-opening six-part saga of courage and devotion, based on Nevil Shute’s 1950 novel. Helen (Picnic at Hanging Rock) Morse and Bryan (Breaker Morant) Brown are fine as the lovers who meet during the World War II Japanese takeover of Malaya, while Gordon Jackson is the dignified apex of the triangle.
