Presented by historian Michael Cathcart, Australia On Trial
is a thought-provoking three-part series, recreating three historic trials that throw light on the Australia of colonial times.
Based on actual court reports, the series provides a unique take on how Australia's national identity has evolved - and how the moral, social and political questions raised by these three trials still resonate in the present day.
Each episode covers a separate trial. The trials featured are The Mount Rennie Rape Trial (1886), The Eureka 13 Trial (1855), and the Myall Creek Massacre Trial (1838).
