AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Mini-series tracing the struggle between two sisters for control of an international fashion house.

According to Moran in his Guide to Australian TV Series:

Body Business was shot in Sydney at the relatively low cost of $3 million. The series was overseen by current PBL head, Jane Deknatel, following the departure of Ian Bradley. Like Kings, The Great Bookie Robbery and Glass Babies, Body Business continued PBL's stress on contemporary genre series, in this case offering viewers a solid piece of melodrama. However, unlike the great 1980s exercise in the genre, McElroy's Return to Eden, Body Business only achieved moderate viewing figures and has not attracted any permanent admirers.


  • According to Moran, Body Business 'was the brainchild' of John Michael Howson.
