Rush was a historical drama set during the Victorian Gold Rush during the 1850s. The first series was set at "Crocker's Gully", a fictitious goldfield created for the series at the foothills of the Dandenongs, near Melbourne. The village of tents and timbered huts was modeled on the lithographs of Samuel Thomas Gill, an artist who portrayed life on the Victorian goldfields during the 1850s. The second season was set in the fictional New South Wales gold-rush town of Turon Springs in the the 1860s.
i cannot believe that this series is so neglected in comment
this was an awesome production filled with the magic of rough tough rural Australian life as it was like in those days of gold prospectors. not to mention all the villains that ended up down under for one reason or another. truly epic television which formulated a vivid insight into rural Australian in a bygone era.
nostalgia at its best when you think back to watching with your mum and dad on late night uk television, why of why do they not put some of the series on DVD - this is what we want many people that watched this show would go right out and buy them.
