Adapted by David Stevens (who also directed) from a novel by Gwen Kelly, the Australian miniseries Always Afternoon took place in the second year of WWI, when Australians of German extraction were rounded up and placed in POW camps along with genuine wartime prisoners. The main plot line concerned the romance between farm girl Frieda Kennon (Tushka Bergan) and German-born violinist Franz Muller (Jochen Horst). Future film star Lisa Harrow was seen as Nancy Kennon. Premiering March 7, 1988, Always Afternoon was shown in four 60-minute installments.
