A Place To Call Home DVD from DVDLand. You'll love A Place To Call Home season 1 DVD.
From the creator (Bevan Lee) of Packed to the Rafters, Always Greener and Winners & Losers comes A Place to Call Home. Set in Australia in the 1950s, it's a compelling and romantic story of one woman's journey to heal her soul and of a privileged family rocked by scandal. Acclaimed actress Marta Dusseldorp leads the cast as Sarah Adams, a woman with a mysterious past who returns to Australia after 20 years in Europe.
Working her passage home aboard an ocean liner, Sarah becomes involved in the lives of the Blighs, a wealthy Australian pastoralist family. She develops an immediate connection with handsome and charming widower George (Brett Climo), as well as his modern young daughter Anna (Abby Earl) and withdrawn daughter-in-law Olivia (Arianwen Parkes-Lockwood). But it is when Sarah unwittingly discovers a potentially scandalous Bligh family secret that her future becomes forever linked with theirs.
Only the uncompromising matriarch of the family, Elizabeth (Noni Hazlehurst), and her grandson James (David Berry), know Sarah has uncovered this family skeleton. Elizabeth is intent on keeping it that way - and Sarah at arm's length. Bearing the scars of war and facing the animosity of a determined matriarch, it is time for Sarah to face life again and begin her journey towards healing and hopefully finding A Place to Call Home.
A Place to Call Home series 1 DVD stars MARTA DUSSELDORP as Sarah Adams, NONI HAZLEHURST as Elizabeth Bligh, BRETT CLIMO as George Bligh, DAVID BERRY as James Bligh, ABBY EARL as Anna Bligh, ARIANWEN PARKES-LOCKWOOD as Olivia Bligh, CRAIG HALL as Dr. Jack Duncan, FRANKIE J.

I didn't watch the first couple of episodes but when I started watching I was soon hooked. I am a child of the 50's and still remember the class attitudes of that time. In my mainly protestant neighbourhood, Roman Catholics were accepted but viewed with suspicion. Men all wore hats and woman gloves. There were no Jewish people in my community but I expect they would have the same reception that Sara faces. The characters and the acting is superb. Great storylines and authenticity. Homosexuality was not a polite subject,not spoken of and even considered a mental illness. I was transported back to my childhood with the cars of the time. Do not miss the opportunity to view this story, it will be a classic of Australian Television.

I must admit when I first viewed briefly an episode of A place to call home on channel 7 I wasn't particularly impressed. I have now sat down & watched all 6 episodes od season 1 . I cannot wait for season 2

I must admit that I didnt think this Australian TV show would be any good. I was wrong. It is a refreshingly good Aussie drama. Sitting down and watching the whole season on DVD made the story lines flow better and get a better feel for the characters. This would have to be one of the best new Aussie shows so far this decade. Can't wait for season 2.
