Starring MyAnna Buring (Downton Abbey), Julian Rhind-Tutt (The Hour) and Russell Tovey from Being Human, Banished is a thoughtful and honest look at how those who landed first were treated and what life was like for them.  Buring and Rhind-Tutt who play Elizabeth Quinn and Tommy Barrett respectively have an illicit relationship and when the powers that be discover this it causes many problems, not just with Governor Phillip, (David Wenham) and Major Ross (Joseph Millson), but also between the trio of friends.

8237356-low-Banished arrives in dock on 20th April 2015 on DVD and Blu-Ray with a RRP of £20.42.  The multi disc set includes a compelling behind the scenes look at the show and how it was filmed, along with cast and crew interviews!
