Building Australia

The Weekender
Season 1  |  Episode 4  |  The History Channel  |  August 13, 2013

Up until now, the houses we've looked at were all meant as permanent residences. But, as the Labour Movement agitated for fair working conditions, including paid holidays and the five day week, leisure was on people's minds. This episode tells the story of what many did with their leisure - they built and, when they could, retreated to weekenders.
