Newsroom drama set in 1980s Australia, hinging on the Lindy Chamberlain story – once again I find myself surprised at still being surprised to see Anna Torv acting with her native accent. Did we do 1950s Australiana on TV in the 80s? The look and attitudes of the time were very well-captured, although I wondered if the treatment of some of the issues raised had been given a more 2020’s treatment.
