    Episode 7: 'Revolution'

    Post-war Australia rebuilds and rebrands. For the first time in decades, a generation is free from economic depression and conflict. The result? Rebellion sweeps the suburbs and the beaches. Rock'n'roll rebel Desmond Duke takes on the Queensland cops; surfer Midget Farrelly, the Surf Life Saving establishment and the best surfers in the world are among the leaders of the baby boomers' transformation of the nation. John Singleton confronts the cultural cringe head-on and celebrates the larrikin – to great effect and profit. For the first time, all Australia embraces Indigenous heroes like Evonne Goolagong. And a force of nature shakes Australia to its core, but inspires Dr Ella Stack to begin a transformation of how we will live on the apocalyptic continent.
