Australia on Trial 2012
Australia on Trial: Australia On Trial is a three part drama series recreating three historic trials that throw light on aspects of Australia during colonial times. The three high-profile and controversial court cases raised major issues of national identity in the developing colonial nation. Each of the cases caused a sensation at the time and attracted enormous public interest. Each triggered social and political debate about subjects at the very heart of Australian society: democracy and justice, the identity and behaviour of Australias men, and attitudes towards women and Indigenous people - themes and concerns that are still relevant to modern-day Australia.
