An excellent beginning to (I hope) a great doco!
9 January 2011 | by See all my reviews

I was a bit concerned about making a review for a yet not complete series. So concider my thoughts to be relevant to the first show. I had seen the promo on SBS but was a bit surprised by its qualities about a taboo subject.

Although I am a recent Australian (arrived 8 years ago), I have always been fascinated by Australian history and the 'white Australia' policy. After speaking about it to my young Aussie friends, I was stunned that very few of them knew much about it. I really encourage every Aussie to watch it.

Very looking forward to next Sunday!
