The First Australians.Ep1/7.pt.1/7 - They came to stay.
Episode 1 - They have come to stay..... This powerful revealing multi series of doco's gives an insight to the early settling days of Australia. Talks about the hardships for all people concerned. The harsh treatment towards the original indigenious people of Australia and the lack of food and knowing of the land by the white settlers stealing the continent... it reveals much more than a group of people from a far off country banging a stick with a bit of rag on the end, into a sandy beach.. i am sure there is a lot that is not disclosed in these doco's also because of manipulation..
