The Making Of Modern Australia

The Australian Soul
Season 1 Episode 4 ABC August 19, 2010

The final of the series looking at changes in the social and cultural fabric of Australia since World War II looks at the Australian soul. Of all the great shifts since the War, perhaps religion has travelled farthest. In the 1940s and 1950s, Australians dutifully attended church and Sunday school and the church had a firm grip on the Australian soul. But from the late 60s, bad boys and girls were finding spiritual fulfilment elsewhere and the churches struggled to keep up.
