The Father of Australia.

 

Can’t wait to see this. It airs on Australia Day (Jan 26th) on BBC Two.
(My home town has a statue of Macquarie in the centre of it.)

The Father of Australia

Lachlan Macquarie, born into poverty on a small Hebridean island, rose to become Governor – absolute ruler – of the British colony that would become Australia.

He and his wife, Elizabeth – Australia’s first Power Couple – set a notorious penal colony on course to become a modern nation.

Macquarie was brought down by powerful enemies in the colony. Yet, two and a half centuries after his birth, he’s an Australian hero.

Drama-documentary starring Clive Russell as Lachlan Macquarie, and Julie Wilson Nimmo Elizabeth. Narrated by David Tennant.
