AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Based on Cliff Green's AWGIE Award-winning script, Marion follows the tribulations of a World War II-era schoolteacher working in the rural Gippsland area. As Moran notes in his Guide to Australian TV Series, 'she finds that the local townpeople resent her being single. She settles down to teach, putting up with insolence from one schoolboy, befriending another with a record of truancy, and trying to help an illiterate country girl. She becomes attracted to an Italian prisoner of war. The series highlights the different values of the country and the city and the difficulties Marion encounters because she is young, female and single.'
