Britbox exclusive Lambs of God filmed in Tasmania, the Blue Mountains and Sydney

The novel by Marele Day was adapted into a series by Foxtel Studios Australia and filmed entirely in the South West regions of the country. In the UK, the series is exclusively available on the BritBox streaming service, from BBC and ITV.  

Lambs of God follows the journey of three Catholic nuns who are the last remaining members of the enclosed order of St Agnes. They have forgotten the world outside until a young priest pushes his way through the undergrowth in the hope of finding prime real estate. A psychological and frightening game of survival in which the nuns become criminals and Father Ignatius is forced to confront his own personal weaknesses unravels.

Set against the backdrop of a crumbling monastery off the coast of the UK, only sometimes accessible via a causeway, the entire production took place in Australia.

Landscapes around the island of Tasmania was shot to establish the remote and wild island. Interiors were created at Fox Studios Australia in Sydney while exterior sets of the crumbling monastery, overrun by nature were built in the Blue Mountains, to the west of Sydney.

The series received production support from Screen Australia, who provide project-specific investments, loans and grants to native projects. In the UK, the drama is exclusively available on BritBox.
