Description

What were the events leading to the birth of the Australian we know today? A Continent for a Nation gives students a good overview of how Australia's six squabbling colonies peacefully united to form one country. This informative program reveals the eccentric natures of Australia's founding fathers and follows the path of a constitution dropped by politicians then revived by the people. Learn why our first Prime Minister was called Tosspot Toby and why Henry Parkes - the man known as the father of federation - actually dumped the idea. This program captures the flavour of the times through rare photographs of people, places and events with unique moving footage of the actual moment of the country's birth.
