Television's first comprehensive account of Australia's 150 year land war between the Aboriginal inhabitants and the White settlers. Between 1788 and 1938 some 2,000 settlers and 20,000 Aborigines died in armed struggle for the land. Letters, diaries and records give gripping first hand accounts of battles, massacres and betrayals. Hundreds of Australian artworks and historical photographs enrich the retelling of these events. The FRONTIER story is one of passionate debate, of decency and missed opportunity as much as of violence and hatred. (3x50 mins documentary miniseries)
