Local Real Estate Subscribe Now TV TRAGIC: How much do we really know about 19th century Australia? The ABC's two-part mini-series The Secret River takes us on a journey to British colonisation in the early 1800s and the conflict between convicts and the indigenous people.
We meet convict Will Thornhill, a man sentenced for the term of his natural life for stealing to feed his family.
The early scenes show us how brutal life is in the new colony and how foreign it must seem to those forced to this ramshackle, dirty place from a big city like London.
When he is pardoned six years later, Will persuades Sal that they could buy Blackwood's boat and business and settle on the Hawkesbury.
Others along the river prefer violence, like the racist Irishman Smasher Sullivan (Tim Minchin). Based on Kate Grenville's award winning novel, this series shows us a part of our history that is often uncomfortable and shocking. The cast is wonderful, from British actor Oliver Jackson-Cohen as Will and Australian Sarah Snook as Sal, to Tim Minchin as the repulsive Oyster farmer Smasher and the compelling Lachy Hulme as Blackwood.

Joanna is cursed to give birth to Freya and Ingrid again and again, only for the girls to both die young. Based on the book The Witches of East End by Melissa de la Cruz, this series is heaps of fun.
