Underbelly: Series 2 - A Tale of Two Cities / The Mr Asia Story

A 13-part Australian mini-series, loosely based on real events beginning with the marijuana trade in the New South Wales town of Griffith during the '70s, and ending with the bringing down of the infamous 'Mr Asia' drug syndicate in the '80s. It serves as a prequel to the 2008 series about the Melbourne gangland killings, and depicts many real-life criminals - Terry Clark of course, Robert Trimbole, George Freeman, Christopher Dale Flannery, and the Kane Brothers - the storylines however have been largely fictionalised.
