Set against the brutal chaos of World War II, a love story begins that will take two lovers through a living nightmare of captivity, across three continents and two decades. From the steamy jungles of Malaya to the dusty and desolate outback of Australia. Based on Nevil Shute's international bestselling novel A TOWN LIKE ALICE follows the lives of Jean Paget (Helen Morse) and Joe Harman (Bryan Brown). Meeting in Malaya - she an attractive young English captive and he a cheerful Australian POW tortured for a simple act of kindness. Separated first by their captors then by the distance of passing years, the two are finally reunited in the rugged outback of Australia-to face a challenge every bit as demanding as their wartime trials.

This version is the first official version and was wonderful to final watch this great story. The old film is very poor and this is very much the complete story with some great actors and locations. The story has slight dramatic changes which are not necessary and should have stayed with the book but still loved it.
Vague memories of it being good?
I've read the book and liked it.
The mini series is the best way to watch this imo. It's an expensive dvd and not easy to find. But after watching the series through I feel it was worth the price.
Tenko series is still top of my list depicting a similar subject matter.
It's a lovely version and I'm so pleased to have it on DVD.
