Hi Carol,

This could be a wild stab (only about 8 years ago), but could it be "Seven
Little Australians"?

January 19, 1999 (Web Review)

Seven Little Australians
(1998) 2 videocassettes. 200 min. $29.95. Questar (800-544-8422,
www.questar1.com). Color cover. ISBN: 1-56855-323-4.
This video two-pack is our introduction to the Woolcot family, as originally
depicted in Ethel M. Turner's novel, Seven Little Australians. The setting
is somewhere in the pastoral landscape outside Sydney, Australia, in the
late 1880s. Captain John Woolcot is the patriarch. His wife, Esther, the
children's stepmother, appears to be slightly older than his eldest
daughter. The children seem to range in age from about 16 to 3 and are,
collectively, written in a very unconvincing manner. The video quality is
mediocre, the acting and the plot lines are often ridiculous and the overall
effect of the eight episodes spread across the two tapes is creeping
boredom. It's hard to see a future for Victorian family dramas in 1998,
particularly a stilted one in which absolutely none of the characters
inspire even the slightest bit of sympathy and/or empathy on the part of the
viewer. My oldest daughters (11 and 10) watched the first 30 minutes of one
tape and then enthusiastically chose bed over further viewing. Not
recommended. Aud: P. (P. Van Vleck)

Best,

Randy
