Question The secret of Hanging Rock movie?

A few years ago my older cousin had a recorded vhs on the story of Hanging rock that wasn't Peter Weir's one; it showed what happened to the missing girls like in the book "The secret of Hanging Rock" published in 1987. She told me she'd recorded it in 1989 or 1990 from a free tv channel; we saw it together many years later, I was only 11 and it was late night, so I don't remember much: perhaps it was a TV movie. Now my cousin had discarded all her videotapes and doesn't remember the exact movie's title. I'd like to see it again it, but I can't find anything about it in the net.
Do you know something about this movie?

Never heard of it. I'm a huge fan of Picnic At Hanging Rock, so I'm happy to know there was a final chapter.:)

You need to go there it's a creepy place. There is more to it than in the movie. The school teacher in charge on the day went back there and fell or comitted suicide I think and then the principal died mysteriously or maybe a suicide. The story is all there at the rock anyway.

The place has a huge history before that as well, active volcano, lots of giant marsupials skeletons found there, also an aboriginal spiritual place.

If I ever make it to Australia, I'll definitely seek it out. It looks amazing.

The novel is written in the form of a false document, implying that it is based on a true story, and even begins and ends with a pseudo-historical prologue and epilogue, adding to the overall feeling of mystery. However, while the geological feature, Hanging Rock, and the several towns mentioned are actual places near Mount Macedon, the story is entirely fictional. Lindsay had done little to dispel the myth that the story is based on truth, in many interviews either refusing to confirm it was entirely fiction, or hinting that parts of the book were fictitious, and others were not. Valentine's Day, 14 February 1900 was a Wednesday, not a Saturday as depicted in the story. All attempts by enthusiastic readers to find historical evidence of the event, characters, or even Appleyard College, have proved fruitless

I think calling it false or fictional is itself a hoax & nothing but a part of great conspiracy! That place holds keys to many great mysteries! I'm sure they're hiding something....they are just trying to taking our attention from it. Better to send an expedition team to unlock all those mysteries...and I vote Angra, Ferret, Newb & Zero for that team.

I just thought it was a great film whether true, hoax or conspiracy.
