Disarmingly realistic in its depiction of the realities of frontier life, Heartland is a strong antidote to the cliches of traditional Westerns. This semi-documentary slice of life is based on the diaries of Elmore Randall Stewart about her days on the Wyoming frontier in the early 20th century. It's a strongly feminist statement about a woman raising her small daughter alone and scrapping for a living by working for a shy Scottish rancher. Director Richard Pearce brings an endearing touch to a film that is helped greatly by the dazzling cinematography of Fred Murphy. Conchata Ferrell and Rip Torn star in this small film that substitutes veracity for a high-powered plot.

The show was also known as Burned Bridge in some countries. Heartland deals with the mystery surrounding the death of an Aboriginal girl and the doubts concerning the guilt of her boyfriend, who is arrested for her murder. It is also a love story between two of the people convinced of his innocence—their growing relationship must survive hostility from both the white and black communities and the obstacles of their different backgrounds, attitudes and cultures. Set in a small coastal town against the turmoils of murder, mystery and romance, Heartland follows the people from this seaside community and their battle to restructure their own way of life.

Other plot elements revolve around the character of Elizabeth Ashton, a writer arriving in a small coastal community.

Into this mix is the local police officer Phil McCarthy who seeks Ashton's affections whilst being hostile to her friendship with Burunga, not just as a rival suitor, but because of racial prejudice.

Heartlanders is an English language television drama telecast on MediaCorp TV Channel 5. Based on the encounters of two officers of the Singapore Police Force. The first season aired on 5 July 2002, and has since another three seasons have aired, with the last season being shown from 12 July 2005. There are no indications as yet if a fifth season will be produced. While the show evoked comparisons with Triple Nine, telecast from 1995 to 1999, Heartlanders was distinctively the first Singaporean English television series to be based primarily on uniformed patrol officers. The show was set in the Singaporean heartlands and in a typical public housing setting, hence the name Heartlanders. The show starred Vincent Ng and Aaron Aziz as the main casts. It was Ng's first foray into an English drama, and helped to expose the latter to the non-Malay television audience. Other cast members included Tracy Tan in Season 1, Corrine Adrienne in Seasons 1 and 2, Steph Song in Season 2, Julian Hee in Season 3 and 4, Priscelia Chan in Season 3 and 4, Desiree Siahaan in Season 3 and 4, and Shaun Chen in Season 4. News of Aaron's planned departure to break into the Malaysian entertainment scene in late 2003 threatened the show's main lineup, and producers banked on the suspense by having Aaron's character almost killed off early in Season 3. This show also featured future Star Search contestants Andie Chen who would later become the Star Search 2007 champion and Romeo Tan who is the finalist of the Star Search 2010.
