Convicts despatched from Britain’s bulging gaols served out their sentences in an ancient land, wresting it from Aborigines, that it be turned over to agriculture and sheep grazing.
This episode tells of Letitia Munro’s descendants, their experiences, hardships, loves and heartbreaks as they unwittingly forge a new ethos.
