Mini-series tracing the history of the Kelly Gang, timed to coincide with the centenary of Ned Kelly's execution.

Moran, in his Guide to Australian TV Series, paraphrases co-author Ian Jones's opinion that 'the mini-series was a perfect narrative vehicle for the Kelly story because it allowed sufficient screen time for the full detail and the general impact of the outbreak to be portrayed. The result on air was an absorbing saga that slowly built in intensity until only Ned Kelly was left to face the hangman'.

Moran also notes that screening the last episode on the exact anniversary of Kelly's hanging one hundred years earlier might have been disadvantageous, since this meant the program ran very late in the ratings season. For whatever reason, the program was not as commercial or critical a success as Pegasus Productions' earlier series, Against the Wind.
