Though it is set in the stark historical reality of the founding of the penal colony in Australia in 1788 after the arrival of the First Fleet, it is not the story of Australia and how it came to be. Rather, it is a tale of love, faith, justice and morality played out on an epic scale in a confined community where the stakes are literally life and death.

Where to Watch: 7 episodes (100%) are available to stream on a popular subscription service (Prime Video, Hulu & BritBox). 7 episodes (100%) are available to rent or buy from $1.99 on 5 services (iTunes, Google Play & 3 others).
