Called an Aussie Downton Abbey, A Place to Call Home, Season 4 makes its DVD debut on February 28, 2017 from Acorn, an RLJ Entertainment, Inc. (NASDAQ: RLJE) brand. Against the backdrop of post-World War II Australia, A Place to Call Home stars Marta Dusseldorp (Janet King, Jack Irish) as Sarah Nordmann, a nurse who becomes involved in the affairs of the wealthy Bligh family. Dealing with themes such as anti-Semitism, sexuality, and social class, this rich and meaningful, high-quality production has been hailed as one of the best television series of 2015 by The Wall Street Journal. The DVD 3-Disc set features 12 episodes ($59.99, AcornOnline.com). Season 4 made its U.S. premiere in November 2016 on Acorn TV, the premier streaming service for world class television from Britain and beyond. The series has been commissioned for a fifth season.
As the smash hit drama returns, nurse Sarah Nordmann (Dusseldorp) and the wealthy Bligh family face new challenges amid sweeping social change in 1950s Australia. Villainous Regina (Jenni Baird, The 4400) has finally ensnared Bligh patriarch and political aspirant George (Brett Climo, Snowy River: The McGregor Saga) in marriage, but she continues to plot against Sarah, exploiting the rising fear of Communism to target her rival. As Sarah teams up with formidable dowager Elizabeth (Noni Hazlehurst, Little Fish) to expose Regina, James (David Berry, Outlander) and his estranged wife, Olivia (Arianwen Parkes-Lockwood, Underbelly), forge a fragile peace, and Anna (Abby Earl, The Great Mint Swindle) strives to advance her literary career.
Universally praised by critics and adored by audiences, this is a “captivatingly filmed, deeply romantic drama of intense intelligence” (The Wall Street Journal). The supremely talented cast also features Craig Hall (The Doctor Blake Mysteries), Frankie J. Holden (Something in the Air), Aldo Mignone (Danger 5), and Sara Wiseman (Mercy Peak).

A Place to Call Home is a suburb period drama set in Australia in the 1950s. Sarah Adams spent twenty years as a nurse overseas. When she finally returns home, she meets handsome widower George Bligh. Sparks fly between the two, but his wealthy family is less than pleased with their budding romance, especially when she has a run-in with his brother. Mrs. Bligh, his controlling mother, does everything she can to keep the new couple apart, but Sarah isn't a woman who gives up easily. Season 3 includes 12 exciting episodes.

All Good Things- Sir Henry is out for revenge
This is such a great show, filled with secrets and romance. Each episode ends in a cliff hanger that leaves you wanting more. In addition to the fabulous story line between the main characters, in also ties in actual historical events from the time period. Everyone gave a stellar performance, but Mrs. Bligh, played by Noni Hazlehurst, is my favorite. She's so good, you just love to hate her. I can't wait for Season 5 to come out on DVD.
