Pioneers Of Love

Season 1 Episode 1 NITV March 8, 2011

In 1910, the Illins, a family of aristocratic Russian dissidents, fled to Australia to escape persecution. Travelling to tropical North Queensland, they took a parcel of land in the wild Atherton rainforest along with other Russian immigrants who dreamed of establishing a Utopian community. Their Little Siberia, however, could not protect them from harassment. This epic saga follows the lives of Leandro Illin and a Ngadjon woman, Kitty Clarke, a traditional owner of the land.
