A sensitive, well-researched reconstruction of a critical event inAustralia's political evolution. An excellent cast rising to the challengeof playing the giants of Australian political life. I was 26 in 1975 andwatching the series 25 years later brought back all the feelings ofdisbelief and bewil...
Kennedy-Miller could hardly have done a better job at tackling a verychallenging exercise: making dry political events work as human drama,and providing an even-handed representation of explosivelycontroversial subject matter.The key to its success on the first count is brilliant acting, althoughI w...
After traveling around the world, it dawned on me that Australia reallylacks one thing that other countries have: history.Fortunately or unfortunately, Australia wasn't establish following awar, it has not had a civil war and most of its political history israther..... boring! Nothing "big" happened...
In nineteen eighty two when it was announced that the Dismisal wasgoing to be made , there was a storm of controversy. This was an eventwhich still left open wounds in the hearts and minds of the Australianpeople. After some changes (listen out for the well timed telephonesringing to disguise names)...
Although I lived in Australia in 1975, I moved overseas not long after,fed up with constant industrial unrest, the general worship ofmediocrity - unless one is a sportsman! - and the complacency of somany Australians who chose to ignore the breakneck pace of changetaking place in countries to their ...
As a Canadian, I didn't know very much about the Whitlam dismissal. Ihad read the Wikipedia page about those events, but that was about it.Earlier this year, when Canada went through a potential constitutionalcrisis (it fizzled out, thankfully) that might have led to interventionby our Governor-Gene...
I first saw this docudrama in the UK in the 1980's, and found myselfintrigued and then astonished at how such good intentions could go sowrong. Previous commentators (who are Australian) have explained theunfolding plot's detail better than I ever could, but I would like tomake an observation about ...
One of the fitting things with this series is the narration, whichintroduces it: "This isn't going to be easy."It's not an easy ride for anyone who remembers it. Mention of these eventscan still start screaming matches in any Aussie pub.That's the second reason to see it.The first reason to see it i...
First rate telling, all the way, of the sacking of tough nut GoughWhitlam who wouldn't go down without a fight, magnificently portrayedby Phipps, but yet again, every actor is at their acting peak in this.This double cassette pic has you right in from the start and doesn'tlet go. We also have some a...
Governments are elected for three year terms, as Reg Whithers said in1973, the Liberals were determined to continue forcing Labor to thePolls until they were defeated. If you ask me, this is portrayed in thedocudrama, but, anyone who says Kerr acted properly in this fails toacknowledge the self-serv...
The earlier IMDB comment entry for this mini-series illustrates thecontentious nature of its subject matter. I seriously disagree with thereviewer's implied claim that the 11/11/75 dismissal of the Whitlamgovernment was an exercise in democracy. The fact of the matter was thattheindividual who dismi...
O.K., here's another chance for those out there to have their little bit ofa whinge at the Governor General saving our democracy by calling an election(gee, what a really subversive thing to do... ask the people what theywant).The series is good, well acted and highly worth watching. If you are not...
