Recovering Australian Stories

How does one begin telling Australia’s story? Who has the right to tell which parts? And who are we to believe? Melding indigenous culture with threads of colonisation, Tim Bonyhady, Daniel James, and Jessica North attempt to piece together the varied parts of our oft-fraught past. Moderated by Mark Dapin.
