    Australian classic which I probably wouldn t have picked up other than I was short of an audio cd for the car The added bonus to these Abc Australia productions, is the pan flute music that is borrowed from the movie version It is pretty music that adds to the flavour of the time of the year 1900 The narrator was outstanding, Australian actress Jacqueline Mackenzie portrayed the Aussie flavour perfectly, her male voices were entertaining and real.The story of a group of girls never to be seen Australian classic which I probably wouldn t have picked up other than I was short of an audio cd for the car The added bonus to these Abc Australia productions, is the pan flute music that is borrowed from the movie version It is pretty music that adds to the flavour of the time of the year 1900 The narrator was outstanding, Australian actress Jacqueline Mackenzie portrayed the Aussie flavour perfectly, her male voices were en...
