Heart of the High Country - First Episode

Television (Full Length Episode) – 1985

All the men have chronic lockjaw. The women suffer and endure. If the landscape looks like heaven, the action is better suited to the other place. Even the sheep get sick. Don't let any nostalgia freak convince you that these were less complicated times.
– The Listener, 1 November 1986, Page 18
It's a story about the triumph of character over circumstance. It asks how can you live your life with humanity and decency in a world which is often hostile and difficult and sometimes forces you into a position where you would be tempted to make compromises in order just to survive.
– Director Sam Pillsbury, Onfilm magazine, June 1985, Page 22
(Valerie Gogan) radiates the confidence and ability of a born trooper.
