The Screen Guide

To most men, the Tasmanian high country in midwinter is a hazard to be avoided. To Basil Steers, its rugged harshness is home. 'A Big Country' visits his retreat in one of the most beautiful and isolated places in Australia, where he sits out the long winter in almost total solitude. Basil Steers is a fur trapper, a mountain man with an intimate knowledge and love of some of Australia's wildest places - the last of a dying breed.
