Post War Australia rebuilds and re-brands. For the first time in decades, a generation is free from economic depression and conflict. The result? Rebellion sweeps the suburbs and the beaches. Rock'n'roll rebel Desmond Duke takes on the Queensland cops; surfer Midget Farrelly the Surf Life Saving establishment and the best surfers in the world. They are among the leaders of the baby boomers' transformation of the nation. John Singleton confronts cultural cringe head on and celebrates the Larrikin - to great effect and profit. For the first time, all Australia embraces Indigenous heroes like Evonne Goolagong. And a force of nature shakes Australia to its core - but inspires Dr Ella Stack to begin a transformation of how will live on the apocalyptic continent.
