All The Rivers Run was shown on television a long time ago as a mini-series. The two main characters (Deli and Brenton) are played by Sigrid Thornton and John Waters. They are perfectly cast for their roles and just bring this unforgettable love story alive!

Philadelphia "Deli" Gordon and the Captain of the ship, are the only survivors of a shipwreck that crashes against the rocks during a violent storm. Deli goes to live with her uncle, aunt, and mischievous cousin at a small farm on the riverbank. She comes into an inheritance and asks her aunt and uncle to get a tutor for her and her cousin. Deli and her cousin get along well, but he hates farming, and eventually leaves home to work in town. Her uncle is a charmer and tries to guide her along the way, but it's obvious her aunt doesn't like her at all. Deli leaves the farm and goes into town to be an artist. Eventually she studies in Melbourne and gains guidance and a suitor. Her talent continues to grow. She is drawn into the Bohemian lifestyle very quickly, but whatever happens in her life, she is always drawn back to Brenton.

Brenton Edwards is the first mate on a paddleboat on the river that goes by the farm where Deli is staying. He sees her sometimes and tries to get her attention, but she ignores him at first. Brenton is handsome, charming, adventurous, ambitious, smart, and loves the paddleboats and the river with a passion. He keeps trying to be a suitor to Deli, but sometimes gets sidetracked by a fight, a paddleboat race, a pretty face, etc. His goal is to be the captain of his own paddleboat. This is an exciting but very dangerous occupation, but Brenton loves the paddleboats and the river, and can't or won't have his life any other way.

Format: DVD
The Australian cult classic.
Starring: Sigrid Thornton, John Waters
Director: George Miller
Genre: Mini Series / Drama
Rated: PG
Running Time: 412 Mins

In a storm off the Victorian coast in 1890, a young English girl named Philadelphia (Sigrid Thornton) or `Delie', is shipwrecked and orphaned. She is rescued heroically by the only other survivor of the wreck.

Over the years Delie develops into a high-spirited and energetic young lady with an indelible magnetism towards the river. She spends most of her life around Echuca, on the Murray River, and invests some of her inheritance in a paddle wheeled riverboat. Her life is forever changed when she meets frontier paddleboat captain Brenton Edwards (John Waters), a cavalier river-man.

She eventually leaves the town of Echuca on a ten-year adventure filled with turbulent riverboat men, exorbitant wagers and a perilous escape from raging fires and relentless lawmen.

Filmed entirely on location at the Murray River and the Port of Echuca, Victoria.

Scripted and Directed By GEORGE MILLER: THE MAN FROM SNOWY RIVER

So glad I bought this dvd. The quality was great. Brought back the great feeling of when mini-series were made for all ages. Loved the extra bit at the end with the actors remembering when they did the series.

Possibly the finest mini-series to come out of Australia. Anybody dreaming of, moving to or thinking of moving to Oz (I was there for over 25 years)should watch this gem. A little history, a great romance and of course fantastic shots of the "sunburnt country"!!
Highly recommended...

"Delie and Brenton" was the German title for "All the Rivers run" and German TV did not air the sequel :(.
I'm glad it's finally available on DVD and fortunately with a multi regional DVD player it's no problem to be watched in the US as well. I wonder why there still is no system worldwide available for DVD's, so that they can be watched all over the planet no matter what continent you happen to live.

I watched this Australian TV series first on German TV, then read the novel by Nancy Cato on which it's based.
This was for sure one of my favorite Australian TV shows, but "Adventures of the Seaspray" and "The Magic Boomerang" (mid sixties) were even better. I wish both would be relased on DVD as well!!! They are long overdue.
Could care less about Skippy, the Cangarooh though :).

I watched most of this TV mini series when I was at home on maternity leave all those years ago and missed the beginning. I often thought about it and then looked on Amazon and there it was on DVD. This is such a lovely trip down memory lane.

Not my usual fare at all, but a series I remembered with affection for about 30 years, so it must have something.

Start off with a better-than-run-of-the-mill romance, add a decent cast of supporting actors and give the lead to a young up-and-coming actor who just happens to be both very talented and gorgeous. ST is still a major name 30 years later, I think this was her big break. Set your filming in some truly spectacular country (the Murray River plays itself very nicely) and add a few bits of Victorian engineering, just to keep that group of fans happy.

It sounds a simple enough formula, but it doesn't get used all that often, so make the most of it.
