Ideal for classroom viewing and discussion.

Australian Democracy tells the fascinating story of how six rival British colonies put aside their differences and came together to form a nation. It also looks at how those once denied democratic rights, including women and indi-genous people, won the right to be full citizens of a truly democratic nation.

Now your students can relive the events of these important years, including:
• The government and law of Australia's indigenous people
• The rule of the Governors during the early years of British colonisation
• The rise of parliamentary democracy in the colonies
• The push for democracy during the goldrush and the Eureka Stockade
• The campaign for Federation
• The struggle for women's suffrage
• The birth of the Commonwealth of Australia
• World War I and Australian identity
• The struggle for Aboriginal rights

The movie features historic paintings, photographs and rare film footage from colonial Australia through to Federation, World War I and beyond.
Part 1: 16 mins; Part 2: 18 mins.
