Over an impressive 35 year career John Pilger's determination to uncover the truth and unearth the facts underlying numerous social and political injustices has taken him to every corner of the globe.

Now John Pilger returns home, exploring the rich diversity and ingenuity of the Australian culture. But what he discovers is a country that remains affected by a shameful past that continues to resonate from acts of colonial prejudice directed against Australia’s Aboriginal people.

1985 – The Secret Country
In 1998 Australia celebrated the 200th anniversary of Captain Cook’s arrival at Botany Bay. Cook declared Australia empty, but in fact there were at least 300,000 Aboriginals living here, and whose descendants continue to fight for recognition.

1999 – Welcome To Australia
On the eve of the 2000 Sydney Olympics John Pilger reveals how Aboriginal sportsmen and women, many world class athletes, were denied a place in Australia’s Olympic teams, while politically their common law rights are threatened by the Australian Government

1988 – Secrets
“Hundreds of thousands of people, whole nations among them were wiped out…” says John Pilger. 'Secrets' is not just about history, it is also about Australia’s past catching up with their present.

1988 – Other People’s Wars
John Pilger examines Australia’s role in numerous foreign wars, often against people who have never threatened our land, and yet wonders why Australians continue to ignore the domestic battles fought on our own soil.
