Using Charlotte Gray's excellent book 'Gold Diggers' as its source material this visually stunning series was recently aired on the Discovery Channel. The characters were 'real' people, at the end of the series we discover what happened to them and it makes for interesting viewing. The cast is strong-in particular Richard Madden and Abbie Cornish and support from Sam Shepard and Tim Roth are worth a mention. The series does not pretend to be an imitation of 'Deadwood' it stands very well in its own right and no one should be put off by the single poor review at the time of writing. The scenery is as much a character as the people themselves, in turns majestic and beautiful, hard and pitiless. You realise just how hard the life was for prospectors and the dirt, mud and jealousy that was part of everyday life for them. Extremely impressive and far from 'average'.

Don't listen to the bad reviews. This show is worth the 13 quid by far. If like me you have become more fond of t.v. shows as opposed to films, as in recent years t.v. shows have vastly improved. Then it's a nice little show. I have nothing bad to say about it. The acting is good, the set designs and production is high quality and no it's not Dead Wood but it isn't meant to be. It's it's own product and worth a watch.

Watched this series on TV first. Very pleased with what I saw, the storyline keeps your interest. Well acted and the scenes were great. If you liked Deadwood or Hell on Wheels you will enjoy this.

I wasn't too sure about getting this as the feedback wasn't all that but decided as there didn't seem to be anything else to tempt me I'd go for it. It was better than expected and both my husband and I enjoyed it, especially as the price was so reasonable. The film really brought to life how hard/horrible the life was whether it was in the gold fields or Dawson City. A smal proportion came out alright but a high proportion of others wasted their money and sometimes lost their lives into the bargain.

I quite like the modern retelling, or at least grittier depiction of 19th century USA and in this case Canada, as it brings home the extent of moral decay when the prospect of being wealthy arrives.

If you are a "fan" of this cinematic genre then you will not be disappointed. The story is good, but I cannot for the life of me believe any Jew is going to pick up a shovel and dig in the dirt for any gold, it never happened and today it is not happening.

Oppenheimer has his low paid, no rights blacks today digging in South Africa for his diamonds, with police ordered to shoot and kill striking miners. Ratner has his low paid blacks digging for Gold under the same conditions. Oh er who exactly made this series?

Enjoyed this interesting and 'real' feeling mini series. Felt some detail was washed over and some scenes seemed to jump but the story moved along and kept you gripped. Definitely cared about the characters and what might happen to them and felt that after watching it I had learned a little bit more about the famous American gold rush.
