Down and Under

This four part documentary series looks into the issue of racism in Australia. Despite what it seems Australia is a nation built on the foundation of racism. Aboriginal men and women were killed from the onset of the establishment of settlements in Australia and later on aboriginal children were kidnapped and forced into schools under the pretext of education and assimilation. These very children latter became known as the stolen generation who brought about shame and regret for the Australian government. Yet despite the government apologies and the spirit of reconciliation the problem of racism is imbedded in Australian society, and it is not merely aimed at indigenous Australians.
