Series Info

A priest is torn between his calling and the lure of a rancher's daughter in this sumptuous epic set in the Australian Outback from 1920 through '62. Miniseries king Richard Chamberlain is in peak form as ambitious Father Ralph, whose turbulent, enduring romance with beautiful Meggie Cleary resulted in the second highest-rated miniseries ever (after `Roots'). This adaptation of Colleen McCullough's novel also earned Emmys for Barbara Stanwyck, Richard Kiley and Jean Simmons.
