“An extraordinary series that goes to the domestic core of some of Australia’s most prominent families… Few of our documentary filmmakers are as adept at eliminating any false hypotheses about their subjects, narrowing the emotional target and zeroing in on it… It makes you think that so ofter on Tv real people are so much interesting than fictional ones…You sit there and winder at how the families allowed such access”
