There's also:

 

A town called Alice

The Thorn Birds

 

Both were shown on TV at a time, however it was more mums and aunties watching those.

Don't think I watched a single episode, however remember the names quite well as they both generated quite a buzz and popularity.

Of the two A Town Like Alice gets my vote. 

 

I can link some of these mini series if anyone is interested. Believe me they make just as good watching as they did back then. Only problem is few were changed to DVD so the prints are mostly VHS rips.

As an 80s kid in Yugoslavia (more precisely Bosnia within YU) loved watching All The Rivers Run with young Sigrid Thornton and John Waters on TV Sarajevo  [ tv sa ]

That one I was talking about is The River Kings starring veteran actor Bill Kerr. You may find it on YT.

The Farm (ABC)

Love is in the Air (ABC)

Blood and thunder the story of alberts (ABC)

ABBA: Bang a Boomerang (ABC)

 

Would you classify Underbelly as a mini-series? the first one was simply outstanding

 

Do tele-movies fit here? "Postcard Bandit" and the one about "Thredbo"

Guess so. Thredbo.. the one about Stuart Diver's survival after the avalanche was a two parter from memory? Underbelly was terrific. The Squizzy Taylor episode got my vote.

Day of the Roses is another one

Remembering the production from decades past is what makes good television.. Day Of the Roses is the telling of the tragic Granville Train Disaster.. if not mistaken.

Another survival story is one I posted today.. Riddle of the Stinson.. About a plane crash in Qld in 1937. Jack Thompson is in it. You can find it on YT. I have also posted  a link to Cyclone Tracy. This is as good as I remembered it. Take a look.

Took some searching but here is a link of Cyclone Tracy I wanna share with you.

https://watch.thewest.com.au/series/252/6802

Bumping this for those who may have missed it. I rewatched it only last month. One of our best 90s mini series.. without doubt.
