Buccaneers and blood-curdling cannibals, heroes and villains, legends and lowlife. An absorbing cavalcade of characters and events that have helped shape the Australian heritage:
  • The pirates: From Dampier on - our swashbuckling beginnings.
  • The Hollywood idols: The extraordinary Errol Flynn and 'The World's Most Perfect Woman', Annette Kellerman - sex symbols who had moviegoers world wide gasping with shock and delight.
  • The deadly enigmas: The Boggle-Chandler sex scandal and the killings that baffled the world's best. The vanishing ship - what happened to the Waratah, the liner that just disappeared?
  • The sporting epics: The Sydney title fight that sparked a lynching rampage. The Miracle Mile and Test Cricket's most astonishing win.
  • The macabre: The husband who murdered her wife. The war hero the government tried to kill. The cannibals who ate a ship's crew.
