SBS Australia: The Australian Wars | Trailer #1 (Content Warning) | SBS and NITV – Commentary


“The story of Australia’s longest and perhaps most defining war has been kept silent – until now. Over three parts, this ground-breaking documentary series gives voice to the story of The Australian Wars – the battles fought on home soil, as the colonial frontier pushed forward, and First Nations peoples resisted. The series directed and presented by filmmaker Rachel Perkins, reveals the truth of Australia’s past. Airs Wednesdays from 21 September at 7:30pm on SBS and NITV, and available to stream free on SBS On Demand.”


Rachel Perkins’ The Australian Wars is essential viewing for everyone who wants to begin to understand why Australia is what it is.
