I've included a clip from the beginning of Part 5 of the series, just to give you a flavour of the series. You can access the series on YouTube, although each episode is broken down into shorter parts. Also check out various aspects of the SBS website, although be aware that some of the links don't work. And you have to face annoying advertising!
About the series
'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.
Over 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.
The story begins in 1788 in Sydney, with the friendship between an Englishmen (Governor Phillip) and a warrior (Bennelong) and ends in 1993 with Koiki Mabo's legal challenge to the foundation of Australia. First Australians chronicles the collision of two worlds and the genesis of a new nation.'
