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 (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.

The music was arranged by Martin Armiger (ex-The Sports) and a superb soundtrack album featured Aussie jazz icon, Vince Jones and Grace Knight from Eurogliders.
