 Delighted to see this. This original documentary came out to accompany the release of a book of the same name, which I proudly have a copy of. The book is predominantly made up from original stories reproduced  from newspapers.

 

I am not sure if the book is still in print, but it really is worth getting a hold of if you want some great insights into the first hundred years.

 

Here are the details should anyone wish to chase the book after watching the documentary.

 

Viking Penguin Books Australia Ltd, 1996

Editors - John Ross (Editor in Chief), Garrie Hutchinson (Executive Editor)

Writers: Geoffrey Blainey, Damien Cash, Noel Delbridge, Keith Dunstan, Martin Flanagan, Harry Gordon, Gillian Hibbins, Russell Holmesby, Col Hutchinson, Garrie Hutchinson, Garry Linell, Ross McMullin, Stuart Macintyre, Robert Pascoe, Michael Roberts, John Ross, Geoff Slattery and Robert Walls.

 

Hope this is of use to anyone interested.
