Tim Winton's Cloudstreet TV series

The adaptation of Tim Winton's novel Cloudstreet to a television drama miniseries is a positive step towards more great Australian literature coming to the screen. Well done to pay-TV movie service Showcase for taking the initiative with this book. The miniseries aired from May 22, 2011 to June 5, 2011 and can now be purchased as a box DVD set. Cloudstreet captures the story of two very different Australian families, living under one roof, and their colourful lives are both tragic and inspiring. The narrative is at times subtle and overt, which engrosses the viewer in a profound and meaningful story.
