In early 1972, Ita Buttrose and Kerry Packer, got together to create a magazine that became one of the most dramatic sensations in Australian publishing history. The result was a magazine that led the way in articulating for women a new way of thinking about themselves and their place in cultural Australia. Filled with intelligence, wit, and a go for it attitude, the fledgling Cleo took off on its first issue, taking Kerry, Ita, and a hand-picked bunch of iconoclastic staffers along for the ride. The drama of early Cleo is a Camelot story, of the best and the brightest on a quest for something they're not entirely sure of.

  • This far exceeded my expectations. It was totally engrossing and so well acted.

  • I was completely absorbed by this mini series. My husband loved it as well. It is our history. I have always respected Ita Buttrose but I now have much more respect for her. My greatest desire would have been to be more educated so I could have been apart of this fantastic adventure.

  • Great series!

  • Ita was a true woman ahead of her time.A woman in a man's world. Great show.

  • Great insight into the era & main players
