The Screen Guide

The Australian sheep drover has become part of our folklore - a tough, hard-living, cunning bushman. And he is not dead. Jack Tormey is one of today's drovers, a man Clancy of the Overflow would recognise as a mate, riding to the rhythms of the flocks and the seasons. A Big Country travels with Jack Tormey as he coaxes 5,000 sheep through 1,500 kilometres of outback stock routes across the Great Divide.
