Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Created by Russell Scott, the Australian miniseries Glass Babies was a bit of speculative fiction involving in-vitro fertilization. Concerned over the fact that his son, Michael (Andrew Sharp), and daughter-in-law, Sally (Belinda Davey), are unable to have children, powerful businessman John Craig (George Mikell) arranges for a private in-vitro session for Sally. Shortly after the baby is born, Michael dies, whereupon John demands that Sally turn over the child to him -- and he has the money and clout to back up that demand. The two 90-minute episodes of Glass Babies originally aired over Australia's 9 Network on April 22 and 24, 1985.
