100 Years - The Australian Story, Episode 3 (Digital)
Land of the Fair Go - Traces the founding belief of egalitarianism and the 'fair go'.
The people of Australia looked to government to safeguard their lot. But when the world changed in the 1980s, Australia had to embrace a pro-market economy and reinvent itself. Today, the challenge is to maintain fairness in a global economy.
This series looks at Australia's march to full independence, our desire to create a land of the 'fair go'; the unfinished business of relations with Aboriginal Australia and the reliance on the great and powerful friends of Britain and the US.
