LAWLESS – The Real Bushrangers is an original landmark documentary series combining science and history in a way which has never been done before in Australia.
At the core of this series is a bold vision to investigate Australian colonial crimes and mysteries using modern day science and technology. Hosted by respected journalist Mike Munro (himself a descendant of bushrangers) we follow investigations into the past and deliver the findings in the present to living descendants of both bushrangers and those who fought against them.
In each fascinating episode, we focus on a single bushranging legend; Ned Kelly (Victoria), Ben Hall (NSW), Captain Moonlite (NSW) and the last of the wild colonial boys - Patrick & James Kenniff (Qld). All are larger than life characters involved in iconic events heavily shrouded in mystery, folklore and fantasy. The bushrangers are heroes to some, villains to others and for their descendants who carry their legacy today; they are a cause of either pain and shame, or pride and glory. There are always two sides to every story. But how do we separate fact from fiction?
LAWLESS - The Real Bushrangers' can be linked directly to the following subject areas of the Australian National Curriculum:
