Overcrowded gaols in Britain required a solution and New South Wales was decided upon. The first fleet of convicts and soldiers struggled for survival. A penal colony where no-one wants to go is transformed by the wool industry into a mecca for British free settlers. The pastoral industry encroaches on Indigenous society with disastrous consequences. A new aristocracy emerges but the economic slump of the 1840s slows migration. Migrants become scapegoats for troubled times.

(1985, 8 x ~11-minute episodes) A co-production of Film Australia and the Australian Institute of Multicultural Affairs.
