The Power, The Passion was another short-lived daytime Aussie soap. This time revolving around business tycoon Gordon Miles, a man with no conscience, who is nearing the end of his life.
Miles manipulates all around him in an endless web of intrigue, often concerning his extremely rich legacy, and especially the choice and grooming of the heir to his business empire.
Sub-plots explored the domestic, love and professional lives of various members of the family’s rivalling branches and Gordon’s murky business deals.
This was the TV debut of Julian McMahon (pictured), son of former Australian Prime Minister Sir William McMahon and Lady Sonia McMahon.
