Oh wow! I would love to read that. I saw the Australian-made mini-series/film and it affected me greatly. It's astronomically expensive in Amazon for something that should rightly be in PD. $11.99 can you believe it?!
EDIT: I tell a lie. I found it for $9.69. Still outrageous considering its age, but at least it comes under the $10 mark.
