"THE THORN BIRDS"
1983


In the heyday of the mini-series "The Thorn Birds" (1983) virtually ruled the ratings roost.
The four-part, 10-hour adaptation of Colleen McCullough's massively popular novel
ranks second only to "Roots" as the most-watched mini-series of all time.
Set in Australia between 1920 and 1962, the epic drew protests for its depiction of an ambitious
Catholic church (Richard Chamberlain) falling in love with a beautiful woman (Rachel Ward).
But the novelist Father Andrew M. Greely, writing in TV Guide, pointed out that ultimately
the series wasn't about "an uncontrollably passionate priest" so much as
"a passionate God" who loves sinners as well as saints.
