Family Fortunes - The Manifolds
The Manifolds is the classic tale of a family that had the good fortune of being in the right place at the right time.... and what's befallen them since. Originally small-time farmers from the English county of Cheshire, the Manifolds packed their bags in the 1820s to try their luck in the colonies.
In 1838, their gamble paid off. The three Manifold brothers were amongst the first pioneers to ride into the rich pastoral country of the Western District of Victoria. They immediately laid claim to all they could see. This film offers an intimate, inside look at what life on a grand colonial estate now offers.
