[edit] Information

The history of Australia told via a unique collection of cinematic moments brought to life for the first time in stunning colour. It tells the story of how Australia came to be the nation it is today. Narrated by Hugo Weaving, it's a reflection on our nation's character, its attitudes, its politics, and its struggle to value its Indigenous and multicultural past. 'Australia in Colour' gives us a chance to relive history from a fresh perspective.

[edit] Family

Soon after Federation, the family unit is buffeted by world conflicts, poverty and disease, but then new attitudes sweep in. Workplace laws are less restrictive on women, spouses no longer have to give a reason to divorce, and the contraceptive pill arrives, all of which leads to a loosening of rigid gender roles.

[edit] Australia at Play

Sport and the arts are imported from Britain and are already embedded in society at Federation in 1901. Fuelled by sunshine and leisure time, homegrown heroes emerge, including Phar Lap, the Australian cricket team, surf lifesavers, Dame Nellie Melba and the hit films that perpetuate and reflect Australia's character.

[edit] Crime and Punishment

Those in authority in Australia at the time of Federation envisage a prosperous and civilised nation of hardworking citizens. But modern Australia grew out of a drunken penal colony and people remain under the thrall of alcohol and drugs and are fascinated by murder and mischief. But the public do rise up against capital punishment and it is abolished nationwide.

[edit] Making Australia

Agriculture, manufacturing, and a growing population supplemented by immigration, transform Australia into a prosperous nation over the course of a century. There are growing pains and challenges, including war and Depression, but there is also the birth of iconic brands such as Myer, Bushells, and Vegemite.
