This Australian miniseries was set in Sydney in the spring of 1944, where one million US servicemen took their final leave before the Pacific campaign.
The story centred on a week in the life of three women – Guinea (Rebecca Gibney), Deb (former weather girl Kerry Armstrong) and Claire (Lisa Harrow) – who all worked in the beauty salon of the prestigious South Pacific Hotel.
The miniseries was based on the 1946 book by Dymphna Cusack and Florence James.
