Series Deconstructing Australian History series
Summary "This Australian-made, curriculum fit program examines the origins and spread of the organised labour movement in Australia between the early 1800s and the 21st century. From the time the eight hour day became the workers' benchmark and the actions of the stonemasons in Melbourne that prompted this movement, to the origins of the Australian Labor Party. A range of fascinating reflections and insights demonstrate how, over the course of Australian History, the structure, levels of membership and political influence of unions and other worker organisations have changed often. Throughout the program, we hear from academics and other notable Australians, including: former Prime Minister Malcolm Fraser, former ACTU secretary and now Labor MP Greg Combet, former Victorian MP Joan Coxsedge, Professor Marilyn Lake, Professor Marian Quartly, author, historian and broadcaster Michael Cathcart, and Humphrey McQueen." --Container
