Well over twenty years old, the legendary Return To Eden (1983) firmly remains Australia's most successful mini-series to date. It has reached worldwide cult status having attracted over a staggering 300 million viewers worldwide! It has even scored mammoth viewing figures in the U.S.A, a market in which seldom an Australian drama has endured!

The central character in Return To Eden is Stephanie Harper, played beautifully by Rebecca Gilling, who is a middle aged, rather niave and plain looking mining magnates daughter and mother of two. Stephanie Harper is also renowned for being Australia's wealthiest woman.

The story opens on the much publicised wedding of Stephanie Harper and the dashing but considerably charmless, Greg Marsden (James Reyne) a somewhat sleazy and nauseating sports star. It's made clear from the outset that Greg, a man nearly half Stephanies age, was blatantly just after getting his greedy hands on Stephanies fortune.

On the wedding day an obvious attraction between Greg and Stephanies frosty best friend Jilly Stewart (marvelously played by Wendy Hughes) is made apparent. Greg and Stephanie invite Jilly Stewart along on their honeymoon at Stephanies family homestead, Eden, located in the Northern terriotry. It is at Eden that the traitorous Jilly embarks upon a torrid love affair with Greg whilst poor Stephanie remains completely oblivious.

One night on the honeymoon, Stephanie and Jilly join Greg on a boat for a crocodile hunt. Once in a deserted spot, Greg maliciously throws Stephanie straight into the jaws of a crocodile whilst Jilly just simply stands by and watches her supposed best friend fight desperately for her life.

I bought this as I remembered it was good but couldn't remember the plot very well. I started to watch it one evening and couldn't stop watching until it was finished. Why don't they make mini series like this anymore?

5.0 out of 5 stars A marvellous Aussie series digitally remastered. 13 Dec 2010
This was Australia's answer to Dynasty and Dallas in the 80s. It delighted most of us for its originality, glamour and the breathless scenes from the mansions of the sydney harbour to the deadly rivers of the Australian tropics. I was very delighted to revisit this series on dvd and glad that it was released on dvd. It is not everyday that you stumble upon a drama where a groom tries to kill his bride in a most dastardly fashion and she is saved by some kind fisher man and a doctor, then goes on to reinvent herself. This is a classic and against the scenic and picturesque Austalian tropics/outback it is a winner. This dvd boxset contains the original six hour epic on 2 discs and is packed with special features viz- interviews with Rebecca Gilling (Stephanie Harper/ Tara Wells) and James Reyne (Greg Marsden) conducted in 2001. This is a great collection and one that will give you 265 mins of viewing pleasure.(this refers to the black and red dvd boxset )

The series continues as a 22 part mini-series which was laced with more glamour, intrigue, passion and power. The Saga of the Harper family continued with Stephanie now married to the doctor that treated her in the original series and her children all grown up. Harper mining is under threat of a hostile take over from none other than Jake Saunders the brother of Greg Marsden seeking revenge for his brother's untimely demise and so much more happening. Will Stephanie have the strength of charcter to rise above another adversity? This 2nd dvd boxset (the blue and white boxset) contains all 22 episodes on 6 discs. an additional 1032 minutes of viewing pleasure.

4.0 out of 5 stars Really enjoyable 16 July 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I remembered loving this series when it was on the TV in 1983 so my friend and I decided to buy this complete series. Really enjoyed watching it again. However, the description on the back of the sleeve is in German and so is the opening of the 1st DVD so I was concerned that I was about to watch this whole series reading English subtitles, but that wasn't the case. The DVD's were in English but with German subtitles. Was also really pleased that at the end of each episode it automatically went to the next one and you weren't subjected to the end of/beginning of each eposide's credits.

5.0 out of 5 stars Return to Eden complete series-uncensored. 19 Oct 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have returned to "Eden"!, i did buy the follow up series first of 22 episodes as i watcthed it somthing dawned on me this wasn't the 1983 origional. So, i quickly ordered the ist one i'm glad i did it is compelling as when i first saw it on my televison in 1983.

Eden is the Dallas of Australia with plenty of schemmimg, wine and large shoulder pads, rich women, dastardly deads, bad deals and swimming pools. "OH! don't we love it?", Jilly is the JR Ewing and Stephanie Harper is the Bobby Ewing.

I suppose really "Eden" is a thing you like or a thing you dislike just watching the camera showing a close up everytime of changing expressions clinches the deal for me.

This film is a must for all things past and for collecters too. I stongly recommend this DVD, go on buy it you won't be disapointed i promise you will feel nostalgic and, have a good by the fireside piece of excellent entertainment.

I remembered watching this years ago and enjoyed watching again. The quality wasn't brilliant but I suppose its the best considering it was dated from 1980's.
