Rain Shadow (TV mini-series 2007) – IMDb.

SPOILER ALERT………..The Local District Vet Kate McDonald (Rachel Ward) hires an assistant, Jill Blake, (Victoria Thaine). Kate is the Vet in a farming district called Paringa. Kate is a vet who cannot keep an assistant, the last ten assistants were either fired or bolted. Jill Blake is her last chance at getting an assistant, the agency has told Kate that if she cannot keep Jill as an assistant for at least 6 Months they will not be sending her any more replacements. Kate (Rachel Ward) is as hard as nails. Jill, her new assistant, young, small in stature is her equal, Tough As Nails. The two women have to learn to work together without killing each other. There is plenty of work, lots of vet stuff in this 6 part series. Each episode is a different situation that the two women have to deal with. But the main issue they have to deal with is the drought, or climate change, and a reportable disease that has infected most of the sheep in the district. Even though the disease is reportable Kate chooses not to report for fear of bringing economic ruin on the entire district. Jil of course has different ideas. This is a beautifully shot, well acted, picture post card Australian TV mini series, well worth the watch. I loved it. I gave it 5*****STARS.
