Picnic At Hanging Rock Episode 2 airs 18 Jul on BBC-2



The plot kicks into gear with the second episode of Picnic At Hanging Rock, airing on Wednesday 18 July on BBC-2 at 9.00pm, now that three of Hester’s (Natalie Dormer) star pupils and a governess, Miss Greta McGraw, (Anna McGahan) are missing after the Valentine’s Day Picnic, yet a search finds no trace of them on the Rock. Has something supernatural befallen the young ladies? Or has a human outrage occurred?

Hester tries to contain mounting hysteria among her pupils by putting the college into lockdown. She believes the young orphan, Sara (Inez Curro), obsessively devoted to Miranda, knows something about the disappearance. But Sara’s loyalty to Miranda (Lily Sullivan) cannot be breached. Two strange riders were seen at the picnic ground. Are they men from Hester’s past, attempting to ruin her?

Aristocratic young Englishman, the Honourable Michael Fitzhubert (Harrison Gilbertson) was the last person to see the girls alive, and when the days pass and the search is finally abandoned, he feels compelled to return to Hanging Rock, where he spends a dark night with the ghosts of his own past.

Under the searing Australian sun, he searches for redemption; he is joined belatedly by his uncle’s coachman Albert (James Hoare). A delirious Mike and Albert find one of the missing girls lying exposed to the elements. But is she dead or alive?

Pictured above is Natalie Dormer as Mrs Hester Appleyard.

Picnic At Hanging Rock is an Australian six part mini-series made by Foxtel. It’s based on  novel by Joan Lindsay that was previously made into a movie in 1975 and directed by Peter Weir.
