Interviews with Prime Ministers, past and present, and unique archival material reveal how Australians redefined their grand experiment in nation building. Episode 5 - Farewell Great and Powerful Friends The final episode details how Australia initially related to the world through its 'great and powerful friends'. Britain was the first such friend - a family bond based on the Empire. The United States was the second such friend with the ANZUS alliance negotiated as a result of the Cold War. But the era of great and powerful friends is over. Australia now accepts responsibility for its own fate and negotiates its own way in Asia and the rest of the world
