Set against the brutal chaos of World War II, a love story begins that will take two lovers through a living nightmare of captivity, across three continents and two decades. From the steamy jungles of Malaya to the dusty and desolate outback of Australia.
Based on Nevil Shute's international bestselling novel, A Town Like Alice follows the lives of Jean Paget and Joe Harman. Meeting in Malaya—she an attractive young English captive and he a cheerful Australian POW tortured for a simple act of kindness. Separated first by their captors then by the distance of passing years, the two are finally reunited in the rugged outback of Australia—to face a challenge every bit as demanding as their wartime trials.

Aye! Agree! We've lived in the Alice, we think the movie is great, and it needs to be released on DVD for regions outside of Australia.

|Town Like Alice on DVD||
I echoed the desire to have a copy of this fine movie on DVD (posted on 06 Nov), then I found an organization within the movie business that creates DVDs or tapes to order. It is called MovieLead and their primary business is for those in the business, but they provide movies for the rest of us... Read More

|A Town Like Alice DVD---I'm BEGGING you.||
I saw this miniseries on PBS many years ago and I've always wanted to own a copy. DVD would be a must because I would probably wear out a VHS tape from watching it over and over again.

I agree. I bought this new on VHS years ago, and still have it. I've watched it several times (and it's getting distant enough to watch again). Why this isn't on DVD is a crime.
This film is VASTLY underseen and underappreciated.
