Australian TV Land Of Hope (Channel 7 1986, Patricia Kennedy) Published 2 years ago on August 30, 2016 Period drama serial Land of Hope spanned 80 years in the lives of the Irish Quinn family starting in the 1890’s and taking in all the key historical events, two world wars, the depression etc. It was a pretty lavish affair but unlike many other period Aussie dramas of the day went for a longish run of 10 episodes rather than the two or four hour mini-series route and consequently it hasn’t been seen too often since. production details Australia | Channel 7 RUNNING TIME: 60 minutes | NUMBER OF EPISODES: 10 | AIRDATES: From 18 May 1986 WRITERS: Tony Morphett, John Patterson, Anne Brooksbank | CAMERA: Jan Kenny | PRODUCTION DESIGN: Owen Williams | COSTUMES: Terry Ryan, Fiona Reilly | MUSIC: Mike Perjanik | PRODUCER: Suzanne Baker | EXECUTIVE PRODUCER: James Davern | DIRECTORS: Chris Adshead, Gary Conway cast MAUREEN GREEN as Young Maureen Quinn PATRICIA KENNEDY as Old Maureen Quinn PATRICK DICKSON as Paddy Quinn BENJAMIN FRANKLIN as Kevin Quinn PENELOPE STEWART as Young Nesta Quinn MELISSA JAFFER as Old Nesta Quinn MELITA JURISIC as Kathleen Quinn DREW FORSYTHE as Old Frank Quinn PETER KOWITZ as Leo Quinn RICHARD MOIR as Dominic Quinn MARK OWEN-TAYLOR as Andrew Quinn HEATHER MITCHELL as Helen Davies Channel 9Maureen GreenMelissa JafferPatricia KennedyPeriod Drama SeriesTony MorphettTV Advertisement advertisement and this just in Episodes21 hours ago Strike Back: Season 7 Episode 5 (Cinemax Fri 22 Feb 2019) Episode 5: Following a high-speed jungle ambush in Myanmar, the suitcase nukes end up in the hands of Jean-Baptiste Zaza...
