Operation Buffalo season 1
Operation Buffalo is an Australian drama TV series from the creator and director Peter Duncan. The series is inspired by true events in the 1950s, to be more precise British nuclear tests in South Australia. Main events will take place on a military base where Major Leo Carmichael will try to make everything function smoothly while running the tests on the world’s most dangerous weapon. The authors say that the series will not only retell the historical events, but also be full of dark comedy and satirical elements.

In 1956, highly decorated military engineer Major Leo Carmichael is tasked with supervising construction of the British atomic test towers at Maralinga, in the South Australian desert.

In Adelaide, Leo sidesteps ASIO and receives an offer from Attorney General Wilcox that he cannot refuse. Back at Maralinga, Eva questions Quentin about his weather reports.
When Leo arrives back at Maralinga with Wilcox and members of the press, he must keep them away from the unexpected visitors hiding in the camp's kitchen.
