Redfern Now

Rarely, very rarely, will a new program engage the viewer from the outset. Such was the effect of Redfern Now. Although I’d seen countless promos in the preceding weeks, one grows sceptical, not wishing to be seduced by the usual hype.

If the remaining five episodes are equal to the first, then Redfern Now is required viewing.
