100 Years - The Australian Story, Episode 4
Unfinished Business - A look at the history of policy and social change regarding Aboriginal peoples in Australia.
Includes the 1967 referendum, land rights, the Mabo decision and the Reconciliation movement. The moral vacuum at the heart of Australia's nationhood was the denial of any place or purpose for Aborigines.
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.
