What a joy it is to return to this classic Australian series from Grundy, the undisputed kings of Australian soap opera who cornered the market in melodrama for a generation. Life at the Albert Memorial Hospital may be a far cry from the hustle and bustle in shows such as ER and even Casualty but this show has a special charm all of it's own.  The late Cornelia Frances shines as the much feared Sister Scott who rules the nurses with a rod of iron and an icey exterior whilst maintaining whilst swanning around the hospital complete with her iconic large flapping sister hat (I'm sure there is a proper name for this glorious piece of headwear!).  Medical procedures take a back seat to the drama in the lives of the hospital staff with bed hopping pin-up doctors and nurses. There are a host of familiar faces from other shows to spot including Peta Toppano (Prisoner's Karen Travers), Abigail (Sons & Daughters' Caroline Morrell) and Paula Duncan (Prisoner's Lorelei Wilkinson) to name a few and let's not forget those memorable characters we meet in this set such as the gossip heavy kiosk worker Ada Simmons, the snappy and hated Dr Snape, everybody's friend Nurse Tania Livingstone, charmer Doctor Raymond Shaw, chancer Dennis Jamison and dependable secretary Helen Gordon.

Via Vision are continuing their recent very welcome trend of bringing us nostalgic treats with this epic 35 disc set which is beautifully presented. Considering this series is well over 40 years the picture quality is surprisingly good and very clear. Bring on collection 2 and keep up the good work Via Vision!
