First Australians: the birth of contemporary Australia

"First Australians chronicles the birth of contemporary Australia as never told before, from the perspective of its first people. First Australians explores what unfolds when the oldest living culture in the world is overrun by the world's greatest empire. Oven seven episodes, First Australians depicts the true stories of individuals–both black and white–caught in an epic drama of friendship, revenge, loss and victory in Australia's most transformative period of history."
