Based on a novel by Mary Grant Bruce, the Australian miniseries Golden Fiddles was all about the Balfours, a modern family living in what used to be known as genteel poverty. All this changed when Mrs. Anne Balfour fell heir to millions. Naturally, this reversal of fortune had both positive and negative effects upon Anne, her husband Walter, and their four impressionable children.
“Based on the novel by Mary Grant Bruce, this is a superb piece of Australian drama made by the South Australian film Corporation. It is a heart-warming, beautifully written piece with a wonderful cast who do it justice from beginning to end.”
