Did you watch it? It was on the ABC last night. I had no idea it was, and just coincidently checked to see what was on and was enthralled. An epic tale of the rise of CLEO magazine back in the 1970's and the rise of Kerry Packer and his empire.
Asher Keedie plays Ita Butrose and she is just amazing. I mean, I love Asher anyway (think Offspring!) and she is just a dynamite in this two part series.
It struck me how difficult it must have been for working women in these times, and the challenges they faced and the boundaries they pushed (and pushed and pushed). They way they just take a punt and start this magazine that has become iconic is just phenomenal. If nothing else, the fashion is amazing!
Part Two on tonight, 8.30 ABC!
