Four million people lived on the Australian continent, but there was no national defence force, no national capital and no national government. Instead, there were fierce economic and political rivalries between the six colonies, and not much cooperation.

This final episode examines the role of international events and relationships in the government's success. It explores the paradox of how an essentially domestic politician, uncomfortable on the world stage, achieves electoral success and secures his self-belief through foreign affairs and border control issues. We see the emotional attachment Howard has for Australia's military history and his growing success in the encouragement of Australian nationalism and promotion of the flag.
