Historian Michael Cathcart introduces William Wentworth and the 'Emancipists', a loose-knit group of former convicts and their children who take on British Governor Ralph Darling in a struggle for independence and civil rights in colonial Australia. Set in Sydney in the 1820s, the second part of the dramatised documentary history series Rogue Nation delves into the conflict between the visionary Governor Lachlan Macquarie, who believes in the redemption of convicts and a fair go for all, and those who argue his social experiment has gone too far.
(2007, 54 mins) A Screen Australia Making History production in association with Essential Media & Entertainment. Produced in association with the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.
