This program looks at how our attitude to our natural environment has changed over time using the Royal National Park in Sydney, the first national park in Australia, and only the second national park in the world as a case study.
This program looks at how indigenous Australians lived before Europeans settled the land including some of the different tasks for male and female members of the clans, women and girls gathering plants, making flour to make cakes, gathering shellfish and cooking, men and boys hunting, making tools and even making a bark canoe.
The program looks at some of the detail of life in the Eora nation. People of the Eora nation lived in the areas where white settlement in Australia began. We see how there were many different Aboriginal nations in Australia. Each Aboriginal country knew where its borders were and there were strict rules about entering another country.
This program looks at Aboriginal displacement from their land, their often forced relocation to reservations and the separation of children from their families. In 1962 indigenous Australians received the right to vote and in 1967, they were officially recognised as Australian citizens when they were included in the census. This program explores this movement for change.
This program looks at how rabbits were first introduced to make Australia more like England. Unfortunately they flourished and became a pest for the farmer and have had a devastating effect on many of our native species.
